Hi yall, im new to the board and i just bought a black diamond Rhom from Pedro (3-4in)at aquascape. Its been a day now since i got him and he still seems a lil disoriented maybe from the long trip i live in California no where near where he came from and im a lil worried
bout his health he doesnt move much at all and he's reall thin too i have a electric yellow chilid that i was gonna mix him in with and he was punking my rhom so i had to take him out of there just in case he killed my new rhom. Is this normal since he's adjusting to his new home and how long do you guys think he'll be like this? once again hi yall

Probably just needs time to adjust, my Irritan came acting really sluggish and not moving much when I first had him for like a week. Don't add fish in with the rhom he is a solitary fish!!! Also you should order from SHark Aquarium in the future there much better I have had exp with both.

he should be just fine, just give him time to adjust as for a cichlid killing the rhom...not gonna happen...turn it around then you have something realistic... keep them seperate. by the way welcome the the site!

dam bro that statement is wrong
there are plenty of chciclids that would kill p's
even a convict can punk out alot of p's

First off thanks for all of the responses guys
. I feel much better now and he actually ate a feeder today but still isnt moving at all i just hope he can adjust to his new home soon then i can feed that cichlid to him lol.

Oh, and by the way shipping to Ca for me was $48 overnight by DHL.
