First time posting but have used the search function for months. I need some help and hoping you guys can provide some insight.
I recently purchased a small Yellow Stripe Maroon Clown from etropicals.com a few days ago for my 2 month old 75 gal
tank. It's been almost 4 days since he arrived and still has not eaten and just lethargically floats at the top corner of a tank as if it's gasping for air. FYI
, all of my water parameters are doing well and temperature is ~80 degrees. I performed the drip acclimation to all my inverts and fishes. I have a few hermit crabs and snails in the tank, a serpent star, and a damsel that are doing very well.
Since its arrival, the Maroon has been sluggish and unwilling to eat. There are currently NO
visible markings (ich, white slime, etc) with the exception of a cut top fin when it arrived. I was also able to "pet" the maroon which led
me to believe that this may be a bad sign. What do you think is the problem? Is this normal for a clown? What should I do?
Thanks in advance
