New fish won't eat

I got a new tuxedo damsel yesterday and it won't eat today. Is that normal? It is the only fish in the 30g tank along with a peppermint shrimp, red crab and a couple of hermits. It has been swimming in the back of the LR hiding since I got it. I tried to feed it a half square of frozen brine shrimp.

Perfectly normal give it another day or two but then I still wouldn't be worried after that long. The fish needs time to adjust to the new environment.

Great thanks! I'm hoping he eventually likes his new home and comes out from the rocks.
