Exclamation Jack Dempsey hiding and not eating

Hello,, i have a Jack Dempsey and its not eating. I've had it for about 3 days and have yet to seen it eat. It has plenty of places to hide and what not. My ph is at 7.0. Its in there with three green terrors of same size, two baby convicts and a pleco. The tank is 55 gallons. Not sure whats wrong. Please help.

If keeping more than one, it is easier and safer for them to keep them in large groups rather than in pairs. Jack Dempsey feels lonesome.
