Default Beginner question

I just got my first axolotl a few days ago and he just hangs out in one corner of the tank all day and doesn't move. He'll come out when I feed him and it looks he moves around while I sleep too. I just want to make sure this is he still getting used to the new environment or just normal thing.The first photo is the corner where he always is I've moved that plant a bit out of the way now.

It might just be his way of getting used to transferring homes. What are the water parameters? You do have a cycled tank, yes?

Sometimes adult axolotls, such as yours seems to be, arent always as active as the juveniles are as well.

Axolotls are nocturnal amphibians, so the most likely situation is that he’s just sussing out his new tank out night when he feels most comfortable
