Hey, thank you so much guys for the ideas. I’ll def try them out. Forgot to mention he’s got a small hole in his head. Is this a problem? If you look at the picture, right of his eye there’s a small black spot. That’s the hole.

Check ur water parameters first. What kind of pellet are u feeding? Is the poop always white and stringy? I’d suggest soaking the pellets in Epsom salt sol (1/2 cup distilled water and 3/4 tsp of epsom salt) till it can be figured out.
Anyone suggest what (or should) medications I should try out?

Sorry didn’t see the reply. Cont with Epsom salt and if able add metronidazole to the tank and feed hex shield if it’s eating.
