Frightened Fish

I have a 180 gallon saltwater tank filled with live rock. And about 3 months ago I added 5 chromis to cycle the tank. And then 2 months ago added a yellow tang. I've been away at school. And there has been quite a bit of construction going on around the tank. But none of the fish ever really come out from hiding. Does anyone know what could be causing this skittishness?

My bet is the construction

It's not like loud heavy construction. More like heavy foot traffic and gluing rock facing to the wall

Hmm... Well... In a bigger tank like that its not always easy to see your fish. My guess is that once you add more fish to the tank they will all become a bit more comfortable and start swimming around

all the sudden movement in front of the tank I presume your working on that sweet looking wall

Very nice looking set up. I dream to have something like that one day.

That is a beautiful set up!! Hopefully after its finished, the fish will settle and get more comfortable and come out. It may take some time, though.
