Do these guys dig into the substrate?

And why do you need to find him.. perhaps not better to let him be and get settled in his new home?

Sometimes best not to stress them out after acclimation, but I don't know this species

I don't think they dig. I turned the light on this morning and he was out and about! He even ate a dried cricket. I was just afraid maybe he jumped out of the tank and the dog ate him because he was trying to leave the small container he was in during acclimation. That would have been sad. He's doing good though! Here is a pic of him today:

To keep this on topic: I fed the minnows some crickets today. They loved them. I also rearranged the driftwood in my hex tank to give the new catfish better swimming space. I plan on doing a 10 gal pwc on the hex today.

Woke up this morning to check on the angelfish. He is still swimming, and looks the same. Maybe a bit happier since the new tank he is in has aquarium salt.

I didn't have time to cycle the water, I just started it yesterday for a future cory tank.

But turns out I need to give this fish some TLC first before then. Poor guy, I went to soak his decor from his previous tank. And OMG! The water turned black from all his scales decaying over time, it was settled under the gravel!

And I get the feeling that since his scales are gone, he doesn't like us looking at him. I went to feed him, he just looked at me. When I left for a few min. and came back, he was eating the flakes for a brief second before diving back down to stare at me=(
