He is new had him for just over 24 hours.

    The water he was in at the LFS has poisoned him with ammonia (and probably trItes/trAtes) to the point that he may not make it, I am sorry to say....he has been living in his own toilet

    Please tell me you didn't get that water in your tank.

    Fresh clean water is the only thing I can think of...make sure there's plenty of surface agitation, run a bubbler if you have one.

    He looks emaciated...if you can get him to eat it would be a good thing, but don't overfeed the tank

    Avoid Petco fish, order fish online if you have to

    Was he in one of those ridiculous "cups"?

    Ok I have a bubbler and I have lots of frozen like blood worms, spirulina brine shrimp, emerald entree, freshwater frenzy and rods food (for my reef tank) that I feed the other fish. But the pellets for him I have are new life spectrum and omega one

    He was in those stupid cups he was super hyper in there but not thinking of it then it was getting weird from Ammonia

    Try some blood worms when you feed...fingers crossed he will be OK, but I must say it doesn't look good.

    When was your last WC?...how big is the tank?

    Overfeeding can cause a multitude of issues, careful with that.

    Daily WC's don't hurt anything, done properly...do you use Prime?
