    i picked him up today. it didn't look to good in the store. he was hiding in a crevasses in the rock and had it's fins clamped . but it was in a tank with some big cichlids ( jewels i think and a green terror) and i bit the bullet and got it.
    i introduced it into the tank after acclimating it for 1 hour +. he is doing a lot better already. he seems very peaceful, but my neon's for some reason are scared of it. the neons just always swim away from it even though he is not chasing them or anything like that. he has already found his cave and is staying in there. oh and i think it is a male. it doesn't have the spots on it's tail but he doesn't have a red belly and it's fins are not round but sharp. do all males have the spots on it's tail?
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    He is always in his cave, and I'm getting worried.
    He has only came out to eat when I fed frozen brine shrimp otherwise it doesn't eat
    It's been 3 days and I'm wondering if he is still acclimating or not

    Thanks, I've noticed he is coming out but as soon as he catches a glimpse of me he rushes very fast into his cave. And even after I leave he won't come out for another 30 minitues. Im going a water change today and hopefully that helps

    some fish are just skittish. Some time turning the lights off / reducing current helps with some fish.

    Vafa...sometimes there are no simple answers. I'm no pro but your fish sounds stressed and I think the best you could do is keep your water pristine and provide lots of hiding spaces and possibly less light to allow the fish to calm.

    Thanks.
    Some questions are not straight forward and I get that but everyone has an opinion and that can help too

    Honestly the Krib's behavior does not sound particularly surprising. All cichlids I have bought tend to behave in the same way. Only after weeks or even months do they lose their shy. It helps if you have other, bold fish in the tank that show there is nothing to fear.
