    Whats up guys I was out last Sunday and got a new blue hippo I have him in my qt on Monday he was fine swimming around he started staying under a pice of live rock on Tuesday but came out several times to eat but so far today he or she is staying under the rock I shined a light to see if he was ok but he went deeper into the hole did a water test all is good what do you think no white spots that I can see I wanted to leave him in ot for at least 60 days while my new tank gets ready I plan to put him into a 120 gal but it hasen't cycled yet Am I just being over concerned? my QT has been up and running for over a year now I have used it many time before with no problems .Any advice would be great!!

    It’s possible you Blue Hippo is scared to death. No pun intended. Barring any visible signs of disease, he’ll probably be OK.

    Good Luck comes to those who research and prepare.

    I agree he is just scared perfectly normal as long as hes not showing any signs of ich he will make it.

    There is no elevator to success in marine tanks. You have to take the stairs.
