He may have pooped, which is good, or he may have expelled his zooxanthellae algae. The later is bad. is his foot attached to anything and are his tentacles sticky?

Also, what are the details of your tank?

all parameters good. 8.2 ph, 10dkh, 1.026 sal, 80 degrees, cal 460ppm,

its foot was still attached to a piece of rock. i just didn't want to disturb it after i put it in the tank.

What are your parameters exactly?

I would stop moving him and letr him settle in. If he is still attached to a rock you are still fine. However, if his foot comes off there is a good chance he is a goner.

it seems that he is still on the rock. he has completly wrapped him self over. just the tips of his tentacles are showing. But you can still see that the mouth is a big white gaping hole in the center of it all. Ill keep my eye on him for the next couple of hours.

He may also just be replacing the water in him. Give him a few days.

floating around the tank, constantly having a gaping mouth, but it is to soon to tell what it is doing. Odds are it is still settling in. It looks healthy to me except for the mouth, but only time can tell with that.

there is still some movement. I see the mouth pushing forward and back repeatively. Hope this is a good sign.
