First thing i would do would be to change 50-75% of the water. Sounds like it MIGHT early stages of ich or velvet. Maybe nothing, but I would keep a very, very close eye on fish and at the first sign of disease ( ich or velvet) I would treat with chelated copper sulfate. Coppersafe by Mardel is a proven product. Loss of appetite is a symptom of ich that you should not ignore. Also if fish are hovering near the surface it usualy means they are seeking higher oxygen levels, as would be the case if infected with ich. Ich usualy attacks a fishes gills first, where you can't see it, so pay close attention. By the time you see white spots, the ich is often well advanced and it is somtimes too late to save your fish.
A 4x magnifying glass is a great tool to have to closely examine your fish.
Good luck! I really hope its not disease.
