Sunken belly and not eating Need Help

I have 4 electric blue rams only one is eating but all it eats is frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp, the other 3 aren't eating they sometimes try to eat but usually don't, sometimes they eat 1 bloodworm or some brine shrimp. they're very active and have setup territory's around the tank and occasionally attack the Bolivian ram but they have sunken belly's does anyone know what's going on thanks.

How long have you had them ?
Who else is in tank with them ?
What temperature is the tank ?
Sunken belly can be several things . It could be an internal parasite .
Prazipro [praziquantel] is a safe internal wormer. Many use it prophylactically .
