Pea puffer not eating?

Hi everyone,

This past weekend, I got two pea puffers and put them in my community tank. I've been feeding them thawed cyclops since the people at the store said they've been doing well on those. So far, one of them is doing really well and swimming around. But the other one is laying on the ground, and doesn't seem to be eating them. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Never really was able to get mine to eat anything but live brine shrimp or pond snails. Occasionally would eat frozen bloodworms. Cute guy but was such a night mare to keep fed.

Mine is too good to eat snails now. He wants live grindal worms. Spoiled little monster.

If one isn't eating that's not a good sign. Call the store and see if you can return for one that is a bit more robust.
