Angelfish not eating
I have two baby Angels in a 55-gallon tank. Tank mates are 4 zebra danios, 1 baby giant danio, 1 male swordtail, 1 female betta, 1 cory cat, and three neon tetras (who are going to have to move soon before they become lunch for the giant danio or the angels).
All water peramaters are at zero and all fish appear healthy, happy, and hungry, except for one of the angels. It used to eat as well as the rest of the tankmates, but for the past week or so it doesn't have any interest in food, no matter what I try to feed it. It does not have clamped fins, any sign of infection or parasites, and I am at a loss as to what is wrong with him. Is it possible for a healthy fish to fast for days on end? In all my other fish experience, a fish who does not eat is a fish whose days are numbered.
I have not seen any fish picking on another, even though angels and bettas can be territorial. The two angels have paired up and follow each other around the tank, and there are tons of plastic plants for the angels to hide in.
