Yellowtail damsels

One of my yellow tail damsels is excavating a small area under my liverock, and hanging out there at night. He/she's new to the tank and one of four....any special reason it might be doing this?

All 5 of my green chromis do this at night, very normal. They also seek refuge behind my powerheads at night where the water flow is low. Good luck!

All of my damsels find a quiet spot hidden amongst live rock or coral during dark hours. Its a natural reaction since they avoid nocturnal predators in the wild this way.
