Pork Stopped Eating

My 6 year old porcupine puffer stopped eating about 2 weeks ago. The only thing he will do is blow water out of the tank. Any suggestions to start him up again? No visible signs of disease. Is this an intestinal blockage?

Has anything in the tank changed in recent weeks? Water parameters? New fish?

If a pork won't eat I agree there is almost always something wrong.

Years ago I had a porcupine that disagreed with algaefix. He went a month without eating. He looked so bad I had to say goodbye to him one day before work, I didn't think he'd survive the day. Somehow he just started eating again, and fully recovered.
