If the lights are off they have PJs they change into. They turn a black color at night or when really stressed. Will it move if you try to touch it?

I've had several fox face fish. They change color (almost blend in like camouflage) at night and/or when stressed. Since he is new to the tank, give him a few days to acclimate to your tank and he should be fine. If he doesn't move when you poke him, then you might have another problem. Don't poke him with your finger though. Their dorsal fin on the top is venomous.
