you should really give them about 1-2 weeks before handling them so they can be accustomed to their new home. try putting your hand into the tank once or twice a day without handling so it gets used to you. Gradually get closer until it is comfertable with you. You can also associate handling with a treat/food they enjoy to help calm it down.
