Page 1 and 2 of this thread has pictures of eggs. They float, so you will see a picture of surface with dots on it.

hi guys, I would like to ask help.. I've recently got a 4-6 inch emperor snakehead..
I put him in my tank yesterday morning and I noticed that he was not swimming all around,
he's just staying at the bottom corner of my tank, he is housed with 5 tiger barbs which I hope he'll eat..
I'm new to handling SHs and I'm wonderin what I can do to make him swim actively and eat aggressively?

Best advice, ...give it some time to acclimate. Young snakeheads are under tremendous pressure in the wild and they're defensive posture is to hide from everything that might be a danger to them. You've only had the SH for a day. Did you introduce him to the new tank with the lights off? is there alot of cover in the tank in the way of plants, rockwork, and surface cover? Provide him enough places for him to feel secure and he'll be more apt to explore his environment. Once he's comfortable you'll see him become more active.
