    Now that my Zoidberg's eye has cleared up a little, he seems to have lost his appetite. Anyone know the cause of this and how I can get him to feed again?

    well, check all the water parameters and maybe a water change if needed.... be warned though... may be the start of senescence... too much of a coincidence with the eye too :( :( :(

    He is very inactive now. He wpould usually swim a few times daily, now he seems to be at the same spot all day.
