Need more information on water parameters. It is not normal for the moray to stop eating.

I've heard that in many situations that when water parameters or anything stressful in general happens it can cause a moral to stop eating for as long as weeks at a time. Some thing may be bugging him , but also sometimes they just go through fasting periods. I wouldn't worry about it excessively. Just keep offering him food once a week and when he gets hungry he'll eat. Water params would help though, since it's right after an ich outbreak.
