It could just take some time... If you have ever been shocked you know the discomfort that follows. If he got a good enough zap though I would say its possible he may have fried his little fish brain a little to much... Only time will tell though, good luck with the little guy I hope he makes a full recovery!

the more water you have in the tank i think the less the shock would have been..

Is he still eating? Is he showing any other signs of injury other than just hiding? If it's possible to keep him healthy, I don't think there's really much you can do.

However, if he doesn't recover and he's not able to eat and seems to be suffering, you might have to euthanize him to put him out of his misery. He could have suffered permanent damage, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he's still just a little shell shocked by the whole experience.

I'd give him a little more time. Can he still function normally?
