Thaks for the info. I acclimated the fish by letting the water temp equalize in the bag he came in to the water temp in my tank.
he seems to have stopped scratching, perhaps it was just shock and water conditions. I do have the softer pillow in the 10 gal tank, so maybe that did the trick. My water stays at about 300 ppm for harndess out of the tap.
I just did a full water change on my 55 and i'm going to give it a week to stabilize before moving the bgkf.
It is still doing that laying on the bottom thing, but I read in another forum that this is normal. That's all I've found on that part, so any confirmation about this activity would be helpfull.
Now that I look over again, the fish is scratching again....maybe his is just pushing against things.....I mean, he is mostly blind right?
There is no sign of external infection or distress, and I haven't seen it's poop yet, I also haven't seen it eat yet, although it picks at the bottom of the tank and I put some mysis shrimp in earlier today. If it had internal parisites would it be eating normaly?
I want to be careful with medication, because this fish is SENSITIVE to it from what i've heard. Sooooo.....what do you all think?
Am I paranoid about the behavior of an oddly behaving fish, or do I have a problem.
