    Don't have any knowledge in saltwater but it is usual when you buy new fish, that they don't eat at first because of the new environment and then settling in.
    BUT I could e wrong and wish you the best of luck!

    How big is your tank? Have you tried a bit of live food?

    As for the marine mix, did you fully thaw it (they can be a bit picky) and its worth trying some Nori Sheets (if you fine them in grocery stores, you want plain, no salt added, no MSG, etc...although Ocean Nutrition does carry it)

    But it could be a new fish thing as well

    (also, welcome to the forum!)
