I will just continue to monitor him. He's such a sweetie and I want to make sure he's happy and healthy.
He's handsome. One thing, the vertical white band by the gills, is that his normal body color or something that just happened? He might be making bubbles soon if the band just appeared.
Did you rinse the gravel really well before putting it in with warm water? If not, you might need a WC and then rinse the gravel in a only been cleaned with tap water bucket (as in no car-wash bucket, not house-cleaning bucket) many many times until the water is clear before putting them into the tank. After that only use that bucket for gravel rinsing.
