When should I start getting worried that they are not eating? I know it's normal for the first few days for them not to eat. My guys seem to be doing well...they still stay in the same spot, except for when I turn the phs off, one of them ventures into the tank a little further each day. I put some food in at this time, and today he went all the way up to it, but then back down again without eating. Should I try a different food? Or just wait it out? Also they seem to like it better without all the water movement...but the water circulation is important right? They are just going to have to get used to it right?

what are you trying to feed them ?
my guy loves fresh shrimp (they'll go crazy over it)
he eats pellets but he is very picky on what size they are anything over size of a pin head he wont touch ,Talk about a spoiled fish lol
I chop it up real fine and only feed what he will eat in a few minutes, trying not to over feed cause I hate a dirty tank

My clowns wouldn't eat either so I started soaking the flakes and frozen limpid in garlic. They go crazy over it.
