Bandit Corydoras refusing to eat.

Hello.

I have somewhat of a problem. And yes yes I know it is partly my fault, but I need to fix it.

I was recently away for about three weeks. The person that I asked to take care of my aquariums while I was gone apparently neglected them.

I have 5 or 6 Bandit Corydoras in a community tank and they refuse to feed. I feed them Nutrafin Max and they would always eat it before the neglect happened.

The Corydoras also act scared, they did nothing but hide in the hollow stumps until I took them out. Now they just attempt to hide behind the fake plants. I haven't seen them scavenge in a long time and their weight is beginning to frighten me.

I'm changing as much of the water as I can, as often as I can, but they still refuse to eat.

What do I do?? I've never had this sort of problem before. I'm also having problems with the Harlequin Rasboras that share the tank, but I posted that in the appropriate section.

Is there anything I can buy that will tempt them into eating??

If it was my dog, I'd be demanding to know who terrified & possibly abused him, but, with fish, lets start with your water parameters. Have you checked your pH, Ammonia, Nitrites, & Nitrates?
