Well a few nights ago, (Two days) I brought home two new bettas. A female CT, and a male DT. They are both beautiful! The DT is pure white, no markings. The CT is red, white, and blue. I bought them from a Petco (They always have gorgeous, healthy fish.) and I noticed that neither one of them will eat. They'll look at the food, and swim away. I feed all my bettas Hikari pellets, four a day.
I've done some research, and from what I understand, they're just nervous being in a new home. When I bought them, the owner had said they had just come in the day before. So I'm hoping that they just need some time to get used to things, but I've never had this problem before. My past fish have always eaten right away in their new home. I'm typing this up just to be on the safe side. I think I just need a little reassurance to be honest. I'm just very nervous..Is there anything I can do to help them calm down?
Any advice is much appreciated.
