Lonely fish??

I moved 7 fish to a new home and my jack Dempsey stays in a barrel that my blood parrots used to always stay in. He barely comes out to eat and it looks like he is lonely. I didn't know fish could be lonely.

Some can be. He could be just adjusting to the change. I don't know much about JD's but I'm sure someone who does will respond.
