Shy Foxface rabbitfish

Hi, I was wondering why my new purchased about 5 days ago foxface been hiding behind the rocks all the time? my tank is a 75g, reef tank.

Amon 0
Nit 0
Nat 0

Cal 400
Ph 0.3
Alk 10dkh
Sal 0.024

PH 8.2

Water moderate to low flow, kessil lights

No other big fish, Foxface is the biggest around 2inches. I also kept 2 nemos and 2 small demsil. Rest are all corals and frags.

Additional, why is Foxface changes color? I see it sometime in grey and zebra like color on the body and sometime yellow?

Fish will change color when they are stressed. I would put money that it is being bullied by the damsels, since they are mean buggers, and that this is why it is hiding.
