    Well I guess the obvious question would be... Does he appear to be bloated ?

    Does he have any signs of illness other then not eating ?

    What are your water parameters ?

    How did you acclimate him to your water ?

    What other fish are in the tank ?

    I'd be testing those water parameters even still to make sure it's not an issue on that end. (coulda just been poor/weak stock).

    Trophues are vegetarians, they need a diet of spirula it can be flake or pellets.
