yellow clown goby

well i added a yellow clown goby yesterday. i dont think hes doing so well. he just sits at the top of the tank, not moving. i think the clowns picked on him a little bit, but now they leave him alone. when i did my water change, he went down to the lr and wont move. will he be ok?? is he just not used to his new home??

Sometimes if not properly acclimated they go into a little bit of shock or a lot of shock depending on how proper you did it. Hopefully he`ll be OK.

Temp acclimate for 15-20 minutes. Then add 1/2 cup of water every 15 minutes until the water volume in bag has doubled. Then remove half the water and repeat adding 1/2 cup until double again. Net the fish and throw the water away. Of corse drip acclimation is better but this method should be fine for fish.

What is the fish doing now? Is it eating? Just keep water parameters as perfect as possible and if it is eating feed it vitamin enriched foods. In short minimize stress.

he is still in the same spot that he was, its a feeding day, so i will feed and see what he does. this morning i thought he had died so i put my finger in there and he swam away. its taking everything in me not to disturb him so i dont stress him more, but sometimes i cant tell if hes alive, he doesnt move. i also did a water change today, so that might have freaked him out, too. poor little guy....

Clown gobies don't swim around alot BTW.
They ussualy like to post on rock or on shrooms. So, if he's sitting still for long periods of time that's normal.
