I have had this fish since sunday.I have not seen it eat anything when I feed the other fish. I have tried prime reef, nutrifin max sinking pellets,seaweed select by ocean nutrution, brine shrimp, and cut upkrill.. All this fish does is race around the edge of the front of the glass back and forth, very active but does not eat. Any

Soak some food in garlic.

It's most likely chasing it's reflection along the front glass. I'm surprised it hasn't eaten yet, although it's only really been 2 days. Any signs of parasites? rapid gill movement, etc? Try soaking the food in some garlic to entice the fish more, otherwise wait a couple more days, it could be still just settling in.
