LOL . can anyone tell me what should i do? thanks in advanced.

You can't force feed them, I don't think. Try soaking frozen brine shrimps or something similar in a few milligrams of crushed metronidazole, then feed that.

If later you find out it is intestinal worms, do the same with a dewormer.

thanks mistergreen, but how to if he wont eat at all? will it be ok if i stir the metronidazole into his quarantine tank? i just bought him about 3 days ago, and i kept him alone with livebarers, will it stressed him? im sure my tank is big enough for him
