I did get one back to normal , but the other still is not 100% but they are eating.  I put them in a 10g and do a 25 -50% every other day.  I have also been feeding them cyclopeze and brine shrimp eggs.  I didnt feed them yesterday and will not feed them until Monday and try some NLS grow then.

I won't pretend to know the feeding habits of cyps, but I have noticed in central and south america species that a sole fish or two will not feed during stretches of time. Its usually with the most aggressive fish, but they won't compete for food, probably since its associated with physical harm?  Obviously, growth gets impacted if left in that situation - moving the fish has worked for me.

They are cyps man.... incredibly picky.

How long has he/she not been eating? days? weeks?

I have had cyps just up and die on me for no apparent reason! Probably some kind of unseen stress that I was missing.

So I have a 75g community tank with 8-9 cyps, N. Helianthis, a female Calvus, and a male N. Brevis.

I feed the tank 2-3 times a day and all the fish look fine and eat, except 1 cyp. I had 3 cyps previously not eat and I gave them to dave and he brought 2 back to life. but when they dont eat they start to look like a boomarang. This fish swims toward the various foods like he is going to eat it but then doesn't. I feed 2-3 different foods throughout the day and he doesnt eat any of them.
