i am having sorta the same problem. except its a tomato clown and he is at the bottom in a corner in the back. ANYWAYS, i think they just need some time to get accustomed to their new surroundings. thats actually the same day i bought mine too. strange. but the tomato seems to be getting better, coming out and exploring a bit. just give him some time and/or food incentive to come out. lol

thats crazy cool. maybe he just likes the top, or has he moved from the spot where the bag floated? perhaps he still thinks he is in the bag? lol
