Yellow Tang not eating

I have had a yellow tang for about 2 months now. Right now he isn't eating like he did when we first got it if at all. We feed our fish mysis and flake which he was eating. We recently got it green seaweed and seaweed pellets.

The first couple weeks we got him, he developed red marks all over him. Looking at him it was external and it looked more internal. It didn't look like scratches or anything like that.

He was also very agressive, but that has now subsided. We had a damsel fish that was causing the aggression.

We have added a few new fish recently. I'm wondering if it isnt eating due to stress.

He is moving around the tank normally and it could be that he is grazing on the rocks. But he looks awfully skinny now.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
