Red Devil newbie

Hi everyone. Im looking for some advice. I rescued a red devil from terrible conditions. (Could not see the fish in the tank the water was that dirty!) Anyway I'm fairly new to cichlids and I'm curious. She won't eat hides when lights are on just strange behaviour I feel. Is she still adjusting? I have her in her own 90 gallon and have offered all kinds of foods. Pellets cricket worms she shows zero interest. Any thoughts?? Thanks.

Years ago I had a red devil with Oscar's and a clown knife and a couple dollar fish. My red devil was very smart and would hide from my much bigger Oscar's until he grew up and took over the tank. He ate gold fish feeders. Never had him not eat though. I never tried feeding him anything else though. Probably not much help. But it was nice memories of an old tank I had 25yrs ago.

Thanks for the reply. We have found the food she likes. She is eating and.... rearranges the tank at will. She lost her mate and moved to a new home and I think she was just nervous. Poor thing came out of aweful conditions. Just being in clean water and being able to see and breathe was a shock to her system.
