I recently had one of my orandas die so i went and bought a new one. I know i shouldn't put him straight into the tank with my other one so he's in a small tank with the same water from the other (i let it soak for 15 minutes in the bag and slowly added the other tanks water). Now he's just sitting at the bottom of the tank hardly swimming...he was the most active in the store thats why i picked him...Is this "sitting" just stress? I made sure the tank is dark to help with his stress, is there anything else i can do for him? and how long should I wait until i add him to the tank with my other oranda? Thank you ahead for any responses.

He probably just needs to get use to his new environment. Just keep a close eye on him. You should wait about a month before adding him with your other fish. Maybe someone else could give you more advice. Hope this helps. :)
