Unhappy im worried PLEASE READ!

spike is acting very strange while i was changing his water he got really pale (which is normal for him) but then like 6 hours later i went to check on my fish he was at the bottom laying on his side supe pale ,and barely moving so i tried putting a mirror next to him and in like 1 minute he was acting normal just swimming around his colors back to normal and really bright i am very confused and why does that happen? (sorry 4 such a long post) please reply thanks !

Sounds like he got really stressed and you didn't acclimate him properly. Did you let his cup float in the tank for a while then add a little bit of his new tank water so he adjusts?

Did you remember to use water conditioner?

The new water may have been too cold.
