This is a koi? Does XL mean extra-large or something else.... how long have you had the fish?

What size tank? What's in the tank? How long has the tank been cycled and what are your readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

Some fish take longer than others to acclimate to their new tank. I wouldn't worry about it just yet. And that little bit of hassling needs to be allowed, too. Every time you add a new fish to the tank, all of the fish re-establish their hierarchy. It's necessary.
