Help with reef chromis!!!!!!!

So i bought three blue green reef chromis last week. They were schooling fine for the first few days and now they are all hiding in my rock! Two of them look a little pale but i havent noticed any white spots. I also have a maroon clown, yellow eye tang and a yellow coris wrasse that are all fine. I have no clue why they are acting the way they are. Im thinking of catching them and putting them in qt for a while, what do you think?

Maroon clowns can be quite aggressive; is the clown picking on them or chasing hem? Are they eating at all?

It could be the Tang scaring them, but I would think that unlikely unless its always tearing after them. It's gonna get territorial/aggressive in that tank.

QT could not hurt. Maybe you'd see something that you're not seeing in your DT? I know my Chromis hide out a lot at times.
