Stress stripes?

Amarilla has stress stripes. How do I get rid of them?
I put her in a bigger tank Friday because she was in a teeny one since I had to separate her and Scuito's tanks.
She is feeling a bit better (sluggishness, disinterest, clamped fins) but I noticed that she does have stress stripes. So what do I do?

The stress stripes should go away after awhile. If she has a light in her tank, I would leave it off.

No she doesn't have a tank light, last time I rested a light-light over her tank she freaked out! I think she is in-love with Axel, whose tank is right next to hers.
Should I move it? I like that it makes her more active but I don't want her to be stressed

I would just keep an eye on her for now and see if the stripes go away. If not, then you can remove Axel's tank.

Okay, thank you. They aren't very prominent, but I'm sure they aren't normal for her.

Yeah the stress stripes should go away. Putting her in a new tank is like you moving from Montana to NYC.lol She'll get comfortable in a couple days.

Yeah, the bigger the better. She just has to get used to it. It also helps if you have plants and hiding places for her also.
