Not eating

Today I noticed that Unagi wasn't moving around too much. She was sitting in the top corner near the filter...and every once in a while she would swim to the other side of the tank and then back. She isn't eating pellets or flakes. The water was cloudy so I did a partial change and it seems to be fine now. Any ideas on this behaviour?

Ok, so I got home, fed her a bit and she ate...I dont know whats up with her...she looks fine. On a side note I'm taking back the Tetra Whisper 3i filter. It sucks....and I like the filtration on the Tom's Aquarium internal filter better.

How big is the tank and do you have a heater in there? If they get too cold, they'll become lethargic and won't eat. Their water should be a constant 76-80* F.

Every 2 days I change out at least half the water, and once a week a complete change. So far today she's been eating well and moving around more.

Hmm that's so weird, you're doing everything that should be done. Hopefully someone else will think of things. :/

How long have you had her? Sometimes when you buy them from pet stores they're already sick and will show signs a couple months later.
