New Tang?

I just bought a new tang and put him in my qt tank. He is just hanging out in one corner of the tank swiming up and down. Is this normal?

Sango... too vague a question. What kind of tang is it? How big is the QT tank? Usually tangs require large aquariums, so a QT is fine for temp. keeping. Do you have any hiding spots? Let us know

Its a Lieutenant Tang. He is in a 20 gal QT and there is a place for him to hide.

Seems like normal introduction behavior to me. Is it after it's reflection?

Im not sure. Thats what I thought he was doing, but he does not stop. I tested the to make sure that the ammonia was and nitrite were good. And they are. I have some sea grapes in there for him too.
