In my experiences, all my fish have started eating within 4 or 5 days depending on the species. Some will eat right away. New fish take a little time to get used to the tank. Like the new kid at school, they act very vulnerable usually until they get used to things. It may take a week or two for the fish to be comfortable in his new home.
