I think liveaquaria may have starved it before shipping. :( He is eating alot, so he is doing better about food, but I'm noticing more ich spots. :(
Yes when distributors ship fish they starve them so they dont polute the water.

If your fish stop eating, try feeding flake food from your finger. That worked with my freshwater Silver Dollar when it stopped eating because of ick. Then i moved the fish over to a quarintine tank with ick medication in it, which saved him.

(I love fish, and, and, fish, and ,and....) This could go on for a while....*30 minutes later*...still waiting...*7 houers later*...ssstttiiilll wwwaaatttiiinnnggg, zzzzzzz...

I can't use a medication in a saltwater tank.
