Why do you keep adding more fish. Your tank is already majorly overstocked. He is probably going to be bullied to death. Of course new fish usually hide during their first day in the tank. But I have a pretty good feeling you tank is heading towards a disaster.

fish stores can do that and most do. Because they know that the fish will be gone probably after a week.

100% agree

The problem here isnt about the size of the current fish but the MASSIVE bioload, like it or not the tank is heading towards problems and illness.

as far as the small tank the lfs had them in i can gurantee you that the water in that tank was connected to a whole system that probably had roughly 500 gallons of water total, not to mention massive filtration.

To help answer your post, New fish most generally hide and wont eat for the first few days in a new tank. a way to cut down on the transport stress and everything else turn your lights out 24 hrs after introducing them.
