Guppy sitting on the bottom

I just got a male guppy last Friday, i am trying to crossbreed him with my female molly but since i got him he is sitting at the bottom of the tank. My water parameters are all fine. Ph is a hair low. He comes out to eat and occasionally swims around but not for long. He doesn't look injured or stressed. What could be bothering him?

Well i have other guppies in a bigger tank and they never really had that issue. Do you think its because he's the only guppy?

Might be. Guppys are happier in a group. Give him a few more days. If he doesnt do better I woould suggest moving him with the other guppies. Or putting more guppies with him
