I just picked up 2 Cyathopharynx Foai Sibwesa and 2 Cyathopharynx Foai Kachese and I haven't been able to get them to eat. Any suggestions??? I have them in their own tank for now but would like to put them in my Front tank.

Hey David, I haven't had any experience with those species myself. Hopefully someone on here can help you.

Give them a little time to adjust to the change.

I have seen frontosa take 4 weeks before they ate. I have never kept Cyathopharynx Foai so I'm a little help for you.

They could have pick up a internal parasite from the previous owner.

They are about 6 inches. And yes I think you may be right, today I noticed they have some ick on them. Hope they can pull through.
