What is the temp of his tank now and the previous tank?

What are the params of the other tank he was in?

When did you move him?

Can you give the information for the other tank?

Have you fasted him lately?

Sorry I know alot more questions. But bottom sitting can be many things.

Sorry I didn't get back to you, how is he doing?

I think at this point I would fast him 2 days and follow with lightly feeding peas 2 days. See if this perks him up a bit.

He could very well have been bottom sitting because of the ammonia in the tank How long has the main tank been up and running?What size/type of filter are you using on that tank,and how often,how much water do you change out on that one?

By taking the water out of the main tank and adding it to the 10 gal.,you may have taken the problem with you.Have you done a recent water change and if so,what are your readings now? :unsure:

:) Glad to hear that he's doing better for you Cisco.It only takes a small bit of Ammonia,or any other toxins,to knock a fish for a loop.Hopefully,that was what the problem was and now that you're aware,it hopefully won't be an issue anytime soon.Just remember that most times when a fish begins acting odd,the first thing to do is test params and change alot of water. :exactly
