Question Lazy Oscar, or Diseased Oscar? O_o

Hey, just the other day i bought a tiger oscar cichlid, and ever since i put him in the tank, he's been resting near the bottom. I never see him leave the bottom unless i put some flakes in! At one point i thought he was dead, floating at the top, but then i poked him, and he swam to the bottom again. Is he stressed, lazy, or sick? PLEASE RESPOND!!!!!
