ok i just got my 7 inch altuvie from pedro and he said this guy was really aggressive and active. i want him because he said that he swims none stop back in forth all day. i was wondering how long it is going to take him to get back to his old self because he is a real p*ssy right now hiding in the corner and stuff. i put some feeder in there and he ate three last night but i didn't see it and their are still three in there. so he is eating and everything!! do i just need to let him come around or is there some wrong with my water any suggestions would be great thanks.

yeah my fish didn't come out for like the first 8 months, then he finally quit being a wussy. Give it time and im sure he'll start becoming more active

My Rhom is the same way. He was the most active at the store, but when i brought him home he is a little wimp. Its been about three weeks and only comes out of his cave at night. Im hoping in the next 6 months he will become more active.

does anyone one know why they are more active in the store is it cus there are so many people around or something? or is it because they have them for a while?

they get used to that tank and the trip home kinda stresses them out.. and bein in a divided tank doesnt help much either.. my rhom was active but now that he is in a divided tank he doesnt have as much swimming room and hes become a tad bit skittish
