That is flashing and can be from stress or something like Ich where there is an irritant that the are trying to scrape off. Keep a close eye on it...

another small step you can take in the future is if you see a fish you want to purchase at the LFS, ask them to feed him. I always do this to ensure they are adjusting to tank life and are still eating. if the fish doesn't eat, either find another one or simply come back the next day and try again. I agree with Mr. X in that he looked moderately malnourished. you can see where his belly is sunken in on the very bottom right behind his gill. also id recommend quarantining any fish you buy, especially hippo tangs, for 4-6 weeks to ensure they are free of disease
