Oh that poor thing! That was a good rescue.

Does it seem active and eating? What are the water parameters in his new home, and how long has he been in there?

He is eating and swimming like normal I am giving him a different type of food than he had been eating could that be causing it? The water tests good every time so I wasn't sure what could be going on
