Why are my fish missing the food?

My blue spotted toby and my cinnamon clown completely miss the food when they try to eat it. This is a recent thing, because before they both used to jump at the food and eat as much as they could. Now they miss it 9 out of 10 times they try to eat it. Why??? They appear otherwise healthy and other than than the food thing they haven't changed at all..

It may be high nitrates. I heard when they are high it may cause fish to go blind. =\

When you say ammonia is acceptable, this means it's 0 right?

I was wondering if they were blind, but I don't think so. They respond when you move your hand outside of the tank.

The only acceptable ammonia in a tank with living creatures is 0.

But it doesn't explain why they are totally missing the food.
