Picked up a Goldrim on Friday 11/26 from my lfs. Fish had been there for 2 weeks watched him eat every time I went in for other things. Brought him home and put him in the qt (it’s a 10 gal as I don’t have much room) I know this is small but have done other tangs in it. I have not seen him eat.

Over an hour acclimation
salinity is 28 ppt (1.019/.020)
Ph 8
Amm 0
Nitrite 0

I am running copper at a lower amount (1)

fish is super calm has all of his color and has nori available plus I’ve tried garlic soaked mysis and brine and formula 1

I have had fish go 48 hours before but starting to concern me a bit.

That level of salinity doesn't help eliminate parasites at all, just masks them temporarily. My Gold Rim did that for a few days but then got comfortable and ate everything I offered. He now eats bubble algae, GHA....if it's green he eats it. He also loves mysis, LRS Fish Frenzy and pretty much anything else I offer.
