Loss of Appetite in Tropical Fish

Home > Tropical Fish > Diseases

The cause of a loss of appetite in tropical fish is most commonly stress. New fish which have just been introduced to a new aquarium are prime candidates to exhibit a loss of appetite. Your tropical fish can also feel a great deal of stress due to overcrowding. If you have just introduced new fish into the aquarium and the original ones are exhibiting signs of stress this may be the case.

The only real thing that you can do to alleviate this condition is ensure that there is no parasites or bacteria present in the tank. Also, ensure that the overall water quality is good in the aquarium.

If you take a sample of your aquarium water to your local pet store they will likely be able to test it for you to determine if parasites or bacteria is present. From there they should be able to recommend a solution to you.
