Celestial Pearl Danios not eating
Today, I got 4 Celestial Pearl Danios. I let them settle in for a few hours, and then tried to feed them crushed nutrafin flakes. They didn't accept them. What can I feed to my CPD's?

Mine eat regular flakes and granules. At this point, mine aren't shy at all and they'll compete with my barbs for food. But when I first got them, I put them in a little 10 gallon by themselves for quarantine, and for a few days they ignored all the food I tried to give them. It can definitely take a little while for new fish to settle in, and sometimes they won't eat right away. Plus, cpd's tend to be shy. So, I'd give it a few more days before I started to worry.
Are they in a tank by themselves or with other fish?

I have some red cherry shrimp in the tank.

Oh that's good. That way the cpd's won't have to compete with other fish for food.
Like I said, mine initially ignored their food--it was like the flakes just floated right past them but they didn't understand that it was food. So, I took a little dish and put it in the tank, and I left a few sinking wafters in it. Eventually, they discovered the wafers and started picking at them. That's what first got them eating.
