Platy Not Eating

    Hello Everyone,
    Just went on a trip to my local fish market today and I picked up 12 Ember Tetras for my 10 gallon and also a platy.

    I tried feeding them and the Ember Tetras were more than happy to eat.

    However, my Platy isn't eating yet.
    He's more focused on doing his own thing, he's just swimming up and down around the sides of the tank.

    Nothing is wrong with him, I'm assuming that he's still adjusting to what I'm feeding him.

    He'll eventually eat right, but when will that be? Maybe a couple of days?

    I'm feeding them crushed flakes.

    Thanks a Bunch!

    Also, here's a picture of them Aclimating

    Alright, Thanks for the advice.
    I'll check again tomorrow if he wants to eat.

    By the way, at first were your Platies like this as well?

    @BottomDweller I know you have some Platies, were yours not eating at first as well?
