How dirty is your gravel? Is he stirring stuff up from the bottom? Did you clean the gravel and do a big water change before adding him?

Hopefully he will calm down for you, perhaps after being in the small tank so long, he is enjoying the room.My birdpage: http://featheredfriends.weebly.com/

Do some big water changes and stir the entire gravel and vac it out. If you don't he will... They are extremely messy eaters also.75 Gallon South Cichlid: Tiger Oscar and Jack Dempsey
55 Gallon GT Tank: 1 Male GT and 8 Giant Danio
20 Gallon Long: Waiting for eco-complete planted red substrate that has been delayed 2 weeks due to weather.

If you have a greenish color water, then its more than likely and Algae bloom. If you have a real cloudy tank, then get Accu-clear. it cleared my tank up within hours, the green was gone and it was clearing the tank within a few days to crystal clear color.
