for future reference dont feed fish on the first day u get them. try soaking the food in garlic if it doesnt seem interested in eating.

the fish is stressed out from the move and it wont do any good to feed it. and your lfs may have already fed it today anyways. and many people feed every other day or every 2 days.

do you have a qt? to tell you the truth, getting a fish when you have a fish that has ich was a bad move. we will work around that though! =]

so no corals, no other inverts?
Edit:actually, i was thinking hyposalinity. i cant really remember but im fairly certain that even this has to be done in a qt. the only way to get rid of ich is get the host out of the tank, treat it, and starve the ich. im not the most expirenced on this topic. ive never had an encounter thank god. i know of 3 ways to treat it. copper medication (needs to be done in qt), hyposalinity (qt again), and just hope (not the best way).
