My Picasso didn't make it.

Hello, I added a Picasso to my tank on Wednesday. He looked good, swimming around alittle checking out his surroundings. Thursday he pretty much stayed in one place on the side of the tank near the bottom, Friday he swam in the same place all day near the top of the tank. This AM (saturday) he was on the bottom, hiding. He died shortly thereafter anyone have any ideas what happened? He looked good, no apparent diseases.

How did you acclimate it? did it eat? How large was it and was it being bothered by anything?

none of the other fish bothered him, I mean they knew he was there but none of them harassed him. I acclimated him for 1 hour+ and I bought him at my LFS where I get ally babies.
