Red Reef Lobster

Hello I just bought a Hawaiian red reef lobster and acclimated it for about 30 minutes. It is however not moving at all, it's just in the corner moving its antennas around, is something wrong with it?

Drip acclimation, but now its hiding in a cave. Seems to be fine, but I haven't tried to feed it yet

They hide during the day hours try and make some type of cave that you can see during the day so it can hide comfortable but you can still observe it

It seems to not be eating the food I gave it, does it not like it because it's wild caught? Or is it just not eating because its new to the tank?
