Skittish Platy

Got two platies the other day. A sunset fire and a Bumblebee. The sunset fire is pretty calm. The Bumblebee is so skittish! She's so skittish that she won't eat. I'm worried, as its been two days, and she looks narrow to me. I've tried mysis shrimp, brine shrimp and flakes. She just ignores them. Seems stressed out at least half the time. Even if I back away from the tank she won't eat. Is this normal behavior for some platies? The sunset fire platy is eating well.

Whats the gender on them? I usually recommend for only 2 platy's to have females. Some times you can have an over aggressive male that will stress out the female.

Thanks for the reply. They're both females. I make sure I only have females in my tank! Don't need males causing trouble, LOL. She's a little less nervous and might have eaten a bit of flake food this afternoon. So hopefully she's settling in.
