yea they are just getting use to their new home dont worry give them time it is toatly norm.
If they are the only 2 fish in the tank than thats why. I find that mbuna are social in the sense they need to see other fish around. Either getting more mbuna (though your choices are limited in a 29) or some tough dither fish should help.
