Fish Is Hiding.
Posted 09 January 2013 - 08:44 PM
Considering all tank vitals are fine, other than the temperature being slightly below normal, should I be worried? I figure it's just the fish getting used to a new tank. The tank is cycled (ammonia is at 0).
Should I treat with stress coat?

Or it could just be he doesn't feel safe yet in a new tank. Let us know if anything changes in a day or so.

I'm not sure this fish is a lab. It has red eyes. It may have been mixed in with the labs, but it looks to me to be an albino of some sort. I don't know if that has anything to do with aggression. The other fish are acting just fine, but it seems that my brichardi and one of the larger labs has it out for this guy. I have a orange fake plant next to the filter. I actually bought it yesterday to help him blend in to avoid getting attacked.
Will they eventually leave him alone or is this going to continue until he is dead?

Sorry I wouldn't be able to identify him, but I'm sure if you posted a pic in another thread someone would be able to.

I have covered the tank for right now, as a black out seems the best way to handle the situation until I can get more plants tomorrow. The LOS needs to be broken anyway, I've just been putting off getting more plants.
Thanks for the reply.
