Alright, got my new male today. When I first put him in the tank he was swimming around happy...and now he's hardly moving. I'm assuming he may be stressed, and just trying to get accustomed to the new home. So I added some aquarium salt and a couple extra drops of stress coat.
He won't respond to tapping stimulation, or even seem to care that I'm there. He just kind of...sits. Comes up once in a while for air, and then sits. Won't eat, nothing. Just want to make sure this isn't something more serious, since he is very new to me.
