WOW! Tough situation.. i had that happen to me just last day.. but realized it 30 minutes later~ Hope someone could help you, but I would try turning off the lights just to let him settle and rest~

Take it out and give it a warm hug =) fish luv~


I think you've already done what you could.. i'm sure you also raised the temperature too~ sure that'll bring out more of an appetite~

was your temperature close with the water you added. I find temperature change causes more stress than the new water seems to.
I check with the thermometer usually since I started on the 50% changes recently.
No deaths thank God.

I'm not sure how long stress could last! But I'm having an issue with Pat's angelfish!
Been home for the 4-5th day.. somewhere there or maybe even longer... he doesn't do anything but sit in the back of all the plants.. he might nip some food sometimes, but rarely! I'm not sure how long this will be before he opens up or even eat!
