They can be prett good hiders, so you may wanna just put some garlic soaked food in the tank to see if the smell entices him out.

Agree, they hide very well. Give him a few days, he will come around.

Yes, I had one that was harrassed by Damsels. It stayed hidden for about a week. Now they all swim together. It will come around. Also they can hide in and under the smallest crevices. I couldnt find mine, and come to find out it was under a large shell. They will burrow out a place under an object to hide.

Mine found a cave in a LR that I didn't know existed. They are pretty good at this stuff.

When I got my first royal gramma, I did not see him for about a week. I thought he was dead and the clean-up crew got him. I even went out and bought another one. Came home and put it in QT then checked my main tank. Sure enough, my first royal gramma made an apperance and was swimming around. So now I have two and they get along great.
