they are probably just stressed and they will probably start eating soon
Agree a little time and patience will do. Should be eating for u soon.

When mine was small it really only ate over night. Never ate in front of me until 8" or so. Also the fish are new and still adjusting. Dont worry, let them get comfortable and they will eat.
