I bought 2 Tiger Oscars yesterday, I wasn't well prepared for them, I was unaware how much they would grow, but I've researched and researched and my paycheck this week will go on them a suitable tank for the rest of their lives and all of the items they will need. However, they haven't eaten. The pet store lady told me to get the freshwater flakes for them at their size, and inch or two each, but they haven't shown the slightest interest in eating. They seem fine otherwise but I haven't the slightest clue about their eating habits and if I should worry now after only 24 hours or so or if they're still adjusting... any kind suggestions would be greatly appreciated so I can keep my oscars as healthy and happy as possible.

normally, newly acquired fish will not eat for a day or two...
moreso if the tank is not cycled yet...

can you brief us when was the tank set up?
what capacity and type of the filter...

I bought the 10 gallon kit for them for a month or 2 while I order the 125 gallon. They've been doing great now though. They're very happy, get along great, and have great appetites. Thanks for the reply though.

What's their size you will be needing to do like 75 percent water changes every couple days and if they are going to,be in,there longer than a month I would return them they will become stunted
