Feed it in small amount like 1 pellet after another, wait for it to consume the food.

Try getting live crickets and give it a shot.

Parasites may come from anywhere and might hit your fish even though you do not feed it live food. Might be some of your decor or water is caring it, there are many possibility but just place aquarium salt 1 tsp per gallon to prevent parasites and do a 50% water change after 2 days.

Many catfish are more sensitive to salt than the average [Only Registered Users Can See Links.Click Here to Register]], but some salt is always a must. Stick to lower concentrations rather than using 10grams per litre and all should be fine.

I agree with Hobbs. Using salt is entirely unneccesary and potentially even harmful if your fish are healthy. The only time to use it would be if you had a nitrite spike, ich, or another disease that weakened the fish.
