IME it happens to most fish. My foxface ate like crazy for the first few days then stopped eating for about 4days, afterwards he was fine. Most likely just a phase, if it continues for more than a few days, then try feeding frozen, juicy foods that it might enjoy more. If that doesn't work, try getting a vitamin supplement like selcon. What are you feeding her now?

Hmm... I though may you overfed them and they got sick of the food or something along those lines. Yeah, try not feeding for a day or two and then try again. If that doesn't work I don't know what to do honestly.. Hope all goes well anyhow.
