FoxFace Help!!

I recently bought a FoxFace lo and he has been in a 55 gallon tank for 3 days now,He is not eating alot he will only take a tiny tiny bit! and all of his body is not yellow top half is black and bottom is yellow.How long will it take for him to settle in and turn back to yellow? is there anything I can do to help? Oh and when he swims he will just go insane and go into what I call his deadly mode with his spines out and his camouflage is really good XD anyone can help? XD

He is probably stressing because your tank is too small for him.

There is plenty of room in the tank for him to swim around and play.do you think if I add another fish it will help?

No that will make it worst, your tank is too small for a foxface. They need atleast 70-75 gallons, he is probably stressing himself. You need to take him back to the lfs that sold him to you. His "deadly" mode as you called it, is a defense mechanism, how much live rock do you have for him to hide in?

For your tank you would need 55-110 lbs. You have approximately 45 lbs now, your foxface is stressing because his tank is too small and he has no where to hide. Is he fully grown? If not approximately how big is he, and could you post some pictures?

What are you feeding him? You do know that they are herbivores. They need plenty of vegetable matter to eat. Dried seaweed and spirulina flakes would be good.
