Releaving fish stress

Alright, So I just got my new girls, A greenn halfmoon and a green marble halfmoon, they are sooo gorgeous its unbelievable. Chard56 really does produce some AWESOME fish! I have them in a smaller quarantine tank for the time being and I was wondering, what are some really good ways to reduce stress in new fish fresh off the postal truck? I ask because despite looking awesome they are both a little pale and stressed from the trip, I want these girls to settle in and feel comfortable as soon as possible

Thanks in advance,

Jirothefish...

wrapping the tank in a towel so it's nice and dark usually helps

I'd just let them settle in. Put them in a quiet area that isn't really bright and give it some time.

I just went and put them in a quiet room with the lights off and the shades drawn, I also added some floating plants in there and it seemed to spark their curiosity, both are swimming and resting in them sooo, I'd say they are settling nicely!

I've been trying to let them relax but its sooo hard not to keep checking in on them and watching them explore their new tank, THEY ARE JUST SOoo Gorgeous! XD I got some pics. of them but for some reason they won't load from this old computer


Thanks for the replies! -Jirothebetta
