Bought on Sunday 3 new black widow tetras they still haven't got there black color though I think it's from stress they are in a school of six what can I do. They don't act strange at all

I have read that background and substrate can effect the colouring.

Darker colours on them will make a fish show more vibrant colours I think.

You've had them less than 48 hours. Give them time to acclimate to the new surroundings.
