I brought home 6 emerald dwarf rasboras on Sunday. I’ve offered them floating flakes, sinking mini pellets, and freeze-dried worms cut up all tiny for their cute widdle mouths. They won’t eat. I’ve tried finding frozen or live options in my area and have found none.

Suggestions please?

P.s. They are the first residents in a fully cycled 55g with some live and fake plants for cover.
pH 7.5, 20 dgh.

Ask what they were being fed? Give them time to settle, it may take a couple days before they eat.

Within a week, they will be too hungry to turn down food. If they persist to not eat, then I would start to worry.

Fish can go almost 2 weeks without food, so I would just continue to try to feed them, but don’t stress. If you start to get to the week or week and a half mark, then I would be a little worried
