I just upgraded from a 29 gallon to a 55 gallon this weekend. I noticed this morning that one of SDs is swimming at an angle. Is this normal? I've checked my parameters and updated them in the info. Everything is within normal range. I had seeded both my filters in the 29 gallon for a month before moving them to the 55.

Is swimming ****-eyed normal behavior for a SD? It still swims in straight paths, but it's as if it's axis is tilted like the globe if that makes sense.

Appreciate it.

I would monitor the fish for a few days. Add some stress coat each day and keep down on the lights, it's a new home for them and he may just be stressed. If he returns to normal, he's fine. If he does not but his condition is not getting any more severe, I guess that could be normal. He may have something wrong with his bladder though if the condition worsens.
