Trigger acting funny...

I moved my fish from my 55 to a 20 while the 55 cycles... all the readings are fine in the 20... I had high am. in the 55... the trigger had been hiding under a log for about 2 days (obviously stressed)... I moved him to the 20 and he is constantly swimming into the gravel looking for something to hide under... the log is too big for the 20g... Any suggestions on how to calm him down? The clown and puffer seem to be doing ok... I am pretty sure they survived the am with minimal stress but I am worried about the Trigger. It is a Niger Trigger btw.

Triggers can be spastic, even when happy and content they can appear freaked out at times. If you have any PVC laying about you could cut a couple of chunks out and let him use that for cover till the 55 gets its legs under it.

BTW good luck with the fish, I hope it all works out well for you and them
