Feeding new Rams

Recently got three new Bolivian Rams (I think theyíre all male) they donít seem to be eating, and if they are itís a very small amount. Theyíre in a community tank of mostly larger tetras, and I used tetramin color flakes to feed everyone but the catfish. In the past Iíve used crisps to feed cichlids, but these guys are a little small to really eat that. I know it might just take them time to adjust to the new tank, but do you guys have any suggestions to help, or products that would be better for them than what Iíve got now?

Get them something pelletized. They pick off the bottom. The tetras are going to beat em to the feed with anything that stays suspended or floats.

Thanks so much, is there a particular brand you prefer or have heard good things about?

I feed mostly frozen. I use omega one cichlid pellets for the pigs, those would do.

Same I think - I use sinking pellets but can be a battle to get something down to them.
