Give him some time. You only had it for a couple hours. When i added my green wrasse to my tank, i was convinced he was dead after 1 week of not seeing it once. I put it in and never saw him again until he just poped out after a week and has been an active swimmer since. Im sure he's fine. They went through a lot worst when being shipped to your lfs tell yourself this.

I have flame angel in my 60 gal reef tank with corals but so far I have no problem with it. However, I came into a conclusion that some fish will accidentally taste the corals while eating algae next to it and start liking it. It happened to my yellow tang who has been a good girl for a year until I started to notice my flower pot coral was closing and thinning. Then I saw her nipping on it. I have to move the coral to another tank and it started recovering.
