New fish

How long does it take the fish to stop hiding and start exploring around the tank after I put them in ???

It just depends on their personality. I've had fish who have taken 2days or 2 weeks. What fish is it?

yep, what fish did you get, what are the other fish in the tank and how big is the tank?

I've had fish that have hidden for weeks and some right out of the bag are out and about. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
