Royal gramma

I added a small royal gramma to my 60 gal tank and he pretty much hides in the rock completely until there's food.. Are they all like this??

Many royal grammas like to hide in a nook and occasionally pop out. I wouldn't be alarmed. Unless you see another fish pestering it or any fin damage It should be fine.

If he is new he may still be getting accustomed to your tank. Also it depends on your stocking. I've had grammas that stayed out more than others depending on the tankmates. You could try rearranging the rocks but you don't know if it will pick a spot more in front or not. Honestly I would leave it be and wait & see if it gets less shy over time.
