    no i have had him a cuople onths now. he has always been shy and would hide when someone would walk up but if you sat there for a min he would come out and swim around. now he hides in the corner under my rock and dont move unless it is feeding day

    my param are all good i just did a 5 gal water change. in my 55 gal. i dont think anything could pick on him he is the biggest one in the tank except my clown fish might be able to they will nip at me when i stick my hand in so maybe i am underfeeding them but i doubt they pick on him
