My newest addition is an electric blue/Sciaenochromis fryeri. BEAUTIFUL FISH with red, white and blue markings. Tank is 55 gal with 4 acei and 4 labs. I have had him 2 days now and he wont eat and every time I go around the tank he takes off and hides til I get a good distance from tank. He is the biggest at around 5 inches. Could it be a wild fish is why it darts at the site of me? And not eatting due to stress of move?

Not eating a skittishness are expected when a fish is first added to a tank. Give him a couple days/weeks to settle in.
