hello guys, I'd like you all to help me.. I'm the livebearers lover, I've had many fish which lose their appetite suddenly quite often. I've tried to find how to make them regain their appetite, but it seems that there's no article discussing about it. does anyone of you know how to medicate such fish?? thanks...

I moved your post from Introductions to Livebearers since this pertains to your question.
Fish can lose their appetite if they are stressed or they are in toxic water conditions. I would not medicate unless there is something to medicate for. Have you tried a large water change to see how they do in clean water?
We need some information here, as well. How large is the tank and your water changing schedule, filters, etc. How long have you had them, is the tank cycled, etc.

thanks, I'm still new here, there are many forums here.
I have a 60 litres tank, and I've done 50% water change weekly since the first time I started my community tank (half a year ago). I always use activated carbon in my filter, and I change my carbon filtration every month. I feed my fish 2-5 times a day, but little by little, not whole at once. I also keep some water plants in the tank...
