I reckon small bass do better in a group I had the same combo and the bass wasn't very active compared to the ones I've had in a group. As they get older it doesn't bother them though.

agreed.how big is it? i think he needs more tank mates to get him outta his shell. i would try some dithers such as silver dollars or other cichlids like oscars,severums or chocolates HTH :)
