Need Help

I am having problems with my freshwater morey eel, he hasn't eaten in about three weeks i would say. I've tried krill, ghost shrimp and also dry food. He is still active swimming around. The water is good I am positive, just afraid that I am going to wake up and he is going to be down and out. Any suggestions. He is about a foot and a half long and almost a year old. Its not like him though, he used to have a sick appetite he would hammer any food that came into the tank even my fish.

I don't know, typically when a fish stops eating it is a sign of an infection or parasitic infestation. Has there been any changes made in the tank recently?

well, recently i did move, so they were in a cooler till i got the tank setup up again and secondly one of my fish had fungus, so i started to treat it using MelaFix. Thinking that might of been the problem i moved the infected fish to another tank and replaced about 25% of the water.
