welcome to the forum.
when buying a new fish you should QT it in a seperate tank to observe health and eating habbits. first off what is a 125lb tank? a 125 gallon?
what are your plans for this tank because you do realise you just added the most aggressive clown first which is going to make future stocking plans harder. i strongly recommend moving at a slower pace. what are you exact water params? ammonia, nitrite,nitrate,ph,temp,SG (what are you testing with) cal, mag,alk ,what type of water, salt, flow, filter, sump, protein skimmer, and anything else you can include.
i personally wouldnt stress over feeding it right away. i feed my clowns (if they are lucky) every other day but usually every 3rd day. i suggest if your using frozen foods to pre-wash them in RO water because the water they come in is high in phosphates a nutrient that causes bad algae. you can pre-rinse it in a fine mesh net or a paper coffee filter. once rinsed garlic will help stimulate appetite and i suggest also soaking the food in a nutrient enhancer like selcon. a mixed diet is important for health.
before taking any steps foward i strongly feel you need to do more research and ask more questions.
