Do Coral Beauty's Hide all the time?

I just got one a couple of day's ago and it's behind my reef. Will it eventually start coming out into the open?

Hiding is a very common thing for fish new to an envirronment. Give it some time, you'll see.

IMO it should come out with sometime, but they will spend a lot of time darting in and out of the rocks. Coral beautys never really 'come out' in the front usually unless its feeding time.

Really hth

They are very shy fish. For a long time mine would nto even come out if I was anywhere close to the tank.
