There is another thread in sick with clowns not eating.. try live pods if u can. Best bet as i stated in the other have the lfs feed the fish u want. I've never seen a healthy fish not eat even after its just been fed.

one died, im sure the second is going to follow suit shortly. So frustrated. i dont mind the time money and effort i put into my tank. im proud of it. but dam this is pissing me off. idk, i guess im gonna take some water to the store have them check my readings are accurate. ive put so much dam food in the water at this point i should prolly do a water change. o well. i wish i was doing something wrong. atleast then id b able to try something different

you could always ask the LFS to feed the fish so you can see if they'll actually eat before you buy them. Also, I think it was stress of moving that cause them to be like that. How did you transport and acclimate them?

i brought them home in the bag. its only a 15 min ride tops. i opened the bag and clipped it inside the tank so the temp could even out. i did the drip in a bucket for an hour. i timed 15 min intervals and took about a cup out each 15. after an hour i put them in. left the light off for most of the night.
