My white skirt tetras are not eating!

Hi everyone and thanks for advice ahead of time!

I just had a bad outbreak of ich that took 3 of my white skirts. :(
The two remaining ones are swimming around, hiding even schooling nicely but will not eat! I have tried to introduce garlic juice to their diet still nothing.

The water parameters are good, the temperature is 80 and the ich is all gone but my past "piranhas" are not even coming up to eat to the top anymore.

What can I do?

Tetras can be sketchy about taking food off the surface of the water anyways. And with only two of them they wouldn't feel as safe as they did when there was more of them. And they are probably not feeling 100% yet from the ich, you should invest in sinking pellets and see if they bite.

Sorry to hear about your loss of fish! Glad to heard you got the ich under control. :D

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Well problem solved. My new angelfishes eat like hell so the tetras follow them. :D I guess they just need a leader to show them what to do.
