Can you post a picture? Have you checked your water params, especially nitrate and calcium? What size tank and what type of lighting are you using? What other animals are in the tank?

It is also possible that the change in conditions has affected it. You might want to call the LFS and find out what their water params, temp, and lighting were wherever it was being kept at the store. Compare theirs to yours, look for big differences in anything...
