Sailfin Tang Hiding

I bought small size sailfin tang two week before. I have yellow tang and convict tang in my 150 gal tank. They dud not fight with sailfin. Sailfin began eating in the fitst day and swam with other tangs without a problem. She swam all the day in the tang with nipping from live rocks. But yesterday she began hiding behind live rocks on the bottom all day and do not eating any food. There is no ich on sailfin tang. Any experiment ?

The tang is a herbivore. Are you feeding them some greens?

I am giving nori and sipirulina. But because of tang is too small i could not see while she was eating. But she was always eating the foods which dropped the bottom.
