I stocked my tank a few weeks ago with a large number of juvenile fish. Right from the start I had one fish that seemed to hide in the bottom corner of the tank. It looks relatively healthy, but it is still acting the same 3 weeks later and I don't see it eating anything at feeding time. Yesterday it was acting particularly lethargic. Swimming in a nearly upright position in the bottom corner. Should I relocate the fish to another tank or take some other sort of measures? Thoughts?

It wasn't being harassed at all until the last 24 hours. It was drawing attention to itself by it's odd behavior. It definitely is almost dead but still fighting. I have a water change scheduled for tonight and I'm going to remove the fish then. If it's still alive. You are correct Deeda.

Tank: 12.75 in L x 48.5 in W x 25 in H

This is sort of a starter/grow out tank. In the coming months I will be adding a 75-125 g tank and will start to redistribute the species at that time. I will probably have 3 tanks by the summer. 60, 75-90 & and 125-150. An all male tank would be sweet, but I'm not sure I'm experienced enough or ready to take that on. As for now, I will try to distribute the fish accordingly once they get a bit bigger. The 2 zebra mandas are beautiful white blotched females. I would like to get a male for them once they get a bit larger. As I find out what the sexes are I will use that info too. DJRansome gave me few thoughts on what he/she would do. Would love to hear your opinion as well.
