I ordered 39 peacocks & haps online and am wondering when I should first feed them. They were in transit traveling by ground & air for over two days.

They're all around 3 inches and have been in my 450gal for about 21 hours now and are looking really settled. Most of them have been together and just resting/relaxing in-place the last 16 or so hours, some nudging but no agressive chasing as yet. When I come in front of the tank none shy away and a few come a bit closer and face me.

Should I try feeding them after 24 hours?

Why not feed them now? Try some food and see how they react. A reputable seller would have fasted the fish for a couple days before shipping to limit waste production while the fish were bagged to reduce fouling the water.
