Turning brown is not always an issue, some do it when the lights go out or while feeding. However, sometimes it is a reaction to stress. Given the size of your tank, and the lack of hiding places and the behavior you are describing i worry it is stress. He appears to be a decent size but not yet too large for your system, like melosu said he should settle down. Just watch when he gets larger.

I think it is..just wanted a second opinion on it.when I'm not in the room he is fine swimming around grazing on the live rock and as soon as he sees me he goes and hide and sometimes he will get up right to the tank glass and just stare at me :/

What else is in the tank with him? He'll likely be ok after he adjusts. That brown color is what you get when he's startled, stressed, uncomfortable, or sleeping. I got tired of mine fast and returned it quickly. Pretty when he's happy and ugly when not.

Once he starts swimming around and feeling better he wont swim around with his fins sticking out. You can clean the tank and everything with no worries. Just never hold the net if he's in it like we do with some fish.
