How is the tang currently? I've had a sailfin over eat to the point of not eating the next day and passed the following day - this was a new fish though and I think a stomach worm was involved. With your fish having been with you for two years already it should have enough meat to last a few days without eating. So just watch it for signs of a parasite, if it isn't already eating by now.

Thanks for the help is eating like a pig again and back to normal I personally think it is the food that he was taking from the hammers and frog spawn that caused him not to want to eat
