First fish

I recently got three green chromis, being my first fish in the tank. One died within four or five hours because when I bought them, he was already sick and I didn't notice it because of the lack of light. When I put him in my tank, I noticed his eye was cloudy and really puffy. The other two are fine. I saw them doing someting that looked like they were kissing. They did it for about two minutes, but it didn't look like they were fighting, just wondering if anybody knew what it meant? Also, real quick, what else should I feed them besides frozen brineshrimp?

Not sure if this holds true in SW (but Damsels and cichlids are closely related), but in many FW fish, jaw locking is a part of a mating/spawning behavior.
