Please help confuse fish???

I have gotten a new tank. My two comets went from 20 gallon now to a 50 gallon. I thought they would be happy but for the past two days...they have been sitting at the bottom of the tank!!! I really thought they would be swimming soooo happy like they were in the 20 gallon...Could it be the filter....making a strong current???? DO YOU THINK THEY JUST NEED TO ADJUST, PLEASE HELP!!!!

Give them some time. They may have gotten shocked. They have changed scenery and size, and they still need to get used to it.

Have they been moving at all? Have they been eating? They will need time to adjust to new tanks. What are the water parameters? What filter do you have? What are some differences between the 20 gal and new tank? ( like temp, parameters, etc )

Definitely check the water parameters. Did you move the filter media to the new tank?
