It could just be settling in. I've had new fish go days before they got the nerve to get into the mix of eating with the older fish.

I would try some brine, but I also agree with TheTodd; it is most likely settling in.

Never turn up the heat in a SW tank. High temps in a Sw tank cause lower aeration. That`s FW you turn up the heat. Also Garlic does nothing to the parasite. Read this
