I got some new clowns two days ago. They’re tiny. Maybe 1.5” long. They don’t seem to want to eat much they just wanna cruise around the tank at full speed. I’m feeding the same food the pet store I got them at fed them. They’re frostbite ocellaris. Is this normal? Short video of the clowns attached. They’re super healthy and have been doing great. I’ve tried feeding mysis and pellets like the LFS and also some marine flakes.

Give them a few days to settle in. Attempt feedings every day, but just a little initially until they start eating with gusto. They look pretty healthy in the video.

They seem healthy to me. They’ve been cruising the tank and they seem to be munching stuff off my rocks

What color is their poop ? Normal or white and stringy ? Is there any hazy or cloudiness to their skin or facial area ?
