View Full Version : Just hiding or something more?

We have just got our pictus catfish over a case of Ick, one really took it hard and was very skinny until about 3 or 4 days ago. Now I find this particular pictus will eat well and swim around first thing after feeding then go hide in a corner and lay on the bottom. I noticed he/she does have a ripped dorsal fin, which hopefully will mend, but other then that I don't see anything physically wrong with the fish. The biggest pictus which wasn't effected by the Ick constantly picks on the other two smaller ones. Is this pictus just trying to stay away from being picked on, or could it be sick?
