New fishy friends. Need some help.

Well, yesterday and the day before, I have come home with a yellow VT male, a yellow VT female, a female VT that looks like a mini version of my King, and a Turquoise CT Female that looks starved. So any tips for the starved female would be great. And the male looks depressed. Help?

Is she trying to eat and can't? Unless you're just trying to figure out whether you should feed her something different, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. How about soaking a pellet to get it soft for her and just give her one every once in a while to see if she tolerates it.

Poor little thing. Hope she's ok in a few days. She has a good home now so she's already much betta (ha ha) off.

If she's really thin I would order some NLS grow or other high protein food.

Oh she eats. I only gave a one pellet a day for each day I have had her, though. Then I will go to two pellets. But it was funny, after I gave her one, she looked at me as if saying "Well, where is the rest?"

Edit: Okay, my LPS sells that. She eats fine, so will I still need that?

It will help her put on weight faster but it's not necessary.
