Thanks for getting them out of the store. Glad they will have better life now! Make sure you follow all the guides on here and if you don’t know something it’s better to ask then to do something wrong.

Welcome! As 22pony22 said, read the care guides, food guides. Sometimes though, even with the best conditions we give them, it's possible they succumb to PPS, Post Purchase Syndrome. Once they go through their 1st molt, you can rest a bit easier.
