Hang in there. My fish didn't eat for weeks and had a very sunken belly, but once the problem was fixed, he very slowly began eating again. He still doesn't have the greedy appetite that he used to have but his tummy has filled out again.
The hard part is identifying the problem.
Are your fish getting skinny?
Is your ph and water hardness constant?
Do they have their own territories in the tank with decor to break up the line of sight?
Is the pleco bothering them during the night?
Is there too much current?
Too much light?
Sorry- just trying to help brainstorm
