 Hi  guys,  
                     A  friend  recently  moved  to  Noida  from  Hyd  and  the  plastic  bag  in  which  the  FH  was  being  transported  leaked  and  since  then,  the  fish's  been  very  sick  and  lies  on  it's  side  and  doesn't  move  much.  The  color  also  changed  drastically.
 
                     I  suggested  him  to  do  25%  daily  water  change  and  keep  it  aerated  all  the  time.
 
                     Plz  let  me  know  your  suggestions.
 
 Regards,
 Vikram.

 He  must  just  be  stressed  out  due  to  the  lack  of  oxygen  and  travel.
 Keep  him  aerated,  and  feed  him  moderately-if  he  is  interested  in  eating.  Keep  the  temperature  stable  and  he  should  be  back  to  normal  in  a  couple  of  days.

 Lack  of  oxygen  can  sometimes  cause  irreversible  damage  to  a  fish,  keep  us  updated.
 
 I  had  a  similar  FH,  who  used  to  lie  on  one  side,  but  he  ate,  swam  (sideways)  and  survived  for
 a  long  time.  Miraculously  one  day  he  started  swimming  normally!  So  you  never  know,  keep  him
 alive  if  he  eats  and  looks  ok  after  a  few  days.
 
 One  more  thing,  try  and  see  if  there's  anything  lodged  in  his  mouth...

 FHs  are  quite  resilient.
 i  bought  a  prized  FH,  put  him  in  a  bucket  for  acclimatisation  before  putting  him  in  the  tank,  before  the  acclimatisation  was  complete,   fell  asleep,  the  fish  jumped  out  sometime  in  that  period,  got  up  and  went  to  see  whats  happening  the  fish  isn't  there  at  all,  it  had  jumped  out  and  dried  up  and  listless,  put  him  in  the  bucket  with  disgust  thinking  of  my  mistake,  after  some  time  i  came  back  and  to  my  surprise  the  fish's  gills  were  moving,  and  in  a  few  hours  he  was  even  moving  around  a  little  bit,  and  by  the  next  he  was  ready  for  getting  shipped  again.
 
 so  after  the  above  said,  i  think  your  FH  shall  be  good  in  no  time  at  all.

 Give  him  some  more  time  to  settle  down.  He  will  be  OK.  Don't  overfeed  him  during  his  stress  period.  In  case  of  acute  stress  I  add  1  drop  per  litre  of  water  of  Dol  Aqua  from  ADA  and  this  takes  care  of  the  stress.  Flowerhorns  are  hardy  and  don't  worry  buddy.
