Hopefully it will start feeding soon. My only quess is that its stressed.. or possibly came stright from the ocean doesn't know wha to eat.. my experince is to have the lfs feed them before i buy them. Hopefully it will start are u trying flakes, frozen brine? Live brine or copods?

Yes I feed my fish flakes and once a week I will give them blood warms to add some meat to their diet but that's all I feed them

If a fish isn't eating you will need to try new foods to get it eating. Also try cyclopeeze I know i had a picky clown who would only eat very small pieces of food for awhile. The cyclopeeze worked excellent since they spread throughout the tank quickly and the other fish won't gobble them up before the clown gets a chance to realize there is food.

Yea that's what i was trying to say .. if it isn't eating it's not liking what your putting in and will have to acclimate it to eat what your feeding your other fish. My point on saying feed live foods is because your clown might not know anything differnt. Like i stated previously alway get the lfs to feed them before you buy. I've never seen a healthy fish pass up food even after its just eaten.
