    They may not be eating for a few reasons. If they eat regularly every day and stop then it's an indicator of tank issues. Have you tested the water?

    pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate. What size tank is this? Normally when things go off-kilter a good start is to test the water as it may give an indication to a possible issue. Also a temperature change (broken heater) could have them acting weird as the colder water will slow their metabolism. There's lots of possibilities, just throwing some ideas out there because it's hard to say without narrowing it down.

    Good afternoon,

    Fish should pretty much always be hungry.

    According to your Profile Information you are not aware of the Aquarium Nitrogen Cycle <--link.

    If you are aware of it, can you post your readings for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate and pH?
