you said it. Like just about any fish it has to get used to its surroundings first. Do not keep forcing food upon the fish becasue this will just be a waste of food. They will eat in due time. For better results chuck in a sinking pellet like a shrimp pellet before you shut the lights off and go to bed.Judazzz said:1" reds? Sounds like you just got them ???
It usually takes a couple of days before newly introduced p's start to eat. It took mine 5 days before they ate for the first time.
