Blue-Green Chromis Hiding

I have a 76 gallon half circle tank that just finished cycling. My LFS said my paramaters were fantastic. I finally got my first fish, 3 bluegreen chromis and 2 dwarf red legged hermits. I drip acclimated both for 2 hours. The hermit crabs are having fun picking off algae from the sand, but the chromis' are yet to be found. When I put them into the tank, one of them was swimming around in the current, and the others were swimming around the filter. I went to the bathroom, checked in on them 5 minutes later, and they disappeared. My hermits are still there and fine. They could not have jumped out, I have the top completely covered. The light hasn't been on all day. What could have happened?

They were shoaling in the tank at the LFS. They told me not to QT them, as they do that for 2 weeks before any livestock goes on sale, along with a FW dip.
