They can eat once or twice a day, so go ahead and feed them within fifteen minutes, they just need a few minutes to settle in.

I used to try to leave them alone for a day after putting them in. No scientific reason for that but I figured they’d had enough stress for the day. They can also find stuff in the tank if they get hungry.

I remember that if you are adding new fish to an already established tank, feeding them just before you dump them in aids as a distraction.

Whenever I acclimate new fish I tend to not feed them the first night and start feeding in the morning.

Feed them about 15–30 mins after, so they have time to Get cozy in the tank, don’t feed them right away, they won’t eat.
