silver platy hiding in cave
i introduced my silver platy (i kinda doubt thats really what he's called) to my tank yesterday. everyone else that was introduced yesterday, 2 goldfish and a starburst platy, are doing great. the 2 new platties lived in a tank with a goldfish, before coming home. i noticed yesterday he was hiding, i assumed he was "shy," hiding behind all the plants. today i came home and went to say hello to them and i couldn't find him. i searched everywhere, to find him hiding in the darkest part under a rock. any ideas why he seems to be hiding and everyone else is out playing?
he missed dinner time too. i read to hold the food under so it goes around the tank. i think i might go get the net and feed him in that so i can see if he's eating. (if thats a bad idea please dont hesitate to tell me not to!) i'm afraid he isn't feeling well. i had a black platy that wasn't active and i came home the next day to him belly up :( i dont want that to happen to the silver one.
thanks in advance
once again i have a 20 gallon tank - tons of hiding spots and plants
i feed them twice a day
the water seems to be perfect
if you need any more info let me know
thank you again
