Hermit crab in one place that normal?

Hello, I pick up a Halloween her it crab 3 weeks ago, he was very active and moving first 2 weeks and switch shells once already. Now he's behind one of my live rocks and hasnt moved in the past 2 days, is this normal for them?

There is plenty of shells for him to switch and plenty of algae and food from my fish for him to eat also.

Also have a algae blennie and 2 clown fish in the tank also.

Thanks in advance.

It may be it's just molted and it's shell is still soft. Should be out by now.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

First time my Halloween molted he stated in the same place for 2-3 days. I thought he might be stuck because he looked wedged between 2 rocks so I moved him. He went right back and stayed there. Eventually I saw the molt.
