Well, what type of fish? I take he is a betta.

I have read before that animals always act very strange before and after earthquakes. Like birds fly away and dont come back, cattle act strange, dogs and cats freak out, etc.

Did his water move a lot during the quake? That may be the problem. Bettas are still-water fish; an upset like that can freak him out a lot.

What is your tank size? Heated? Params?

Make sure he's warm enough and his water is super clean. Keep an eye on him. He's probably just stressed out.

I wonder if putting a towel over his tank would help to reduce outside stimulation. (just make sure he's still getting air, of course). Just a thought that popped into my mind...
