I just got my first SW
fish.. I made sure I get a straight one.. the first store a lot were leaning(and some dieing) so I didnt even buy from there.
By the time I got home it was good, but when I acclimated it , it started leaning inside it's plastic bag.. from then on it's been leaning, but its very active.
In the morning it was acting strange.. going up and down in the corner a few times and swimming up as if there is a down current on him and he just keeps falling. He even hid in the rocks almost face up.
The first day it was hiding, but night/morning came and now it's just flying around the tank.. ate it's food too.
It's a yellow tailed damsel. All my levels were at 0 and my shrimp was almost all dissolved before I put him in.. but I didn't do a big water change, only about 10%...
will he recover? is there something I can do.
is it somewhat normal? he seems all in good shape.. I just hate to see him leaning.. it's a tiny bit, not too much and sometimes he rights himself for a bit..
He's still very scared.. hides when anything moves around the tank and changes colors..
thanks for any help..
