Actually yes just fine guess its the nature of the fish to lay on its side . Everytime i turn the light off it goes in back and lays on its side. Was kidda disappointed no one answered anything about the fish

Sorry it took so long for someone to reply to your thread.

Glad the fish made it, sometimes it happens if our members are not able to offer a solution, they will not reply.

Sorry bohmert. I wish I were around last Saturday to answer this, but I wouldn't have been much help anyway. I have no experience with this particular fish, but have seen clownfish and tangs both exhibit a similar behavior when I first acclimate them, only for them to be fine afterwards...

I am glad to hear that everything turned out alright.

Nothing good happens fast in an Aquarium
