three strip damsel issue

i just put a thrre stripe damsel in to my system the first few days he was fine eating and moving around the tank. Now all he does is hide in the rock and wont come out. He wont eat. I use a mix of frozen food. Should i use flake food??

Damsels eat just about anything you give them. You might try soaking the food in Selcon, or Kent;s Garlix Xtreme to see if that helps. What are the water parameters on the tank? He is unhappy about something. Keep an eye on him.
