The problem here isnt about the size of the current fish but the MASSIVE bioload, like it or not the tank is heading towards problems and illness.
as far as the small tank the lfs had them in i can gurantee you that the water in that tank was connected to a whole system that probably had roughly 500 gallons of water total, not to mention massive filtration.
To help answer your post, New fish most generally hide and wont eat for the first few days in a new tank. a way to cut down on the transport stress and everything else turn your lights out 24 hrs after introducing them.
