It's too early to be worry, let them get used to their new tank. We saw the same thing when we bought ours.
What's the temperature of their tank's water?

Welcome, Luka. Many of your questions are answered here:

The sexing question is answered here:

It is common that newly-purchased firebellies will not go into the water. Thus, it is difficult to feed them! You must either get them into the water, or find a way to feed them on land (small live food, or using tweezers).
