    Hi,

    Give yr luohan sometime to get used to its new home. Put yrself in its shoes, u`d need sometime to get used to yr new home.

    After a few days, u`d see yr beloved luohan exploring the tank like a scout searchin the enemy. On a sidenote, did u acclimatise yr luohan before havin him in yr tank ?
    Thanks & Regards,
    Trevor

    I do what i normally do to my other fish. Soak the plastic bag with fish in the tank for 1 - 2 hrs before releasing fish into water

    Well.. What yr're doing is called acclimatising.. Sorry if spelling is wrong.. So im pretty sure if u let yr luohan rest for a few days and get used to the surrounding.. in no time u`d have a happy luohan..
    Thanks & Regards,
    Trevor

    Have you conditioned the tank? Like cycling, correct pH, temp, etc. If there is a light, make sure its not too bright. Might help to keep the light off for a few days.
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    I've observed my dad's LH and noticed that some LH will hide after it goes into the tank and comes out a few days later. Some LH will never come out. Some LH will come out once release
    Lyon I would rather walk a thousand leagues then to see your ugly face

    Don't worry about your LH lah. When young, they all tend to be afraid of everything. They'll change later at 5-6" and you'd wish they'll be less aggressive..

    My LH used to hide behind the filter when he was 2"-5". Now at 10", he stares at me and tries to bite my hands when I clean his tank!

    Just be patient and don't give up this LH because it's cowardly. It will soon establish its territory and move around. Could take a few days to a few months depending on fish
