TRIGGER help PLEASE

I just bought a humu humu today at the fish store , i have had problems with ick and my tank has been treated and i bought a damsels and kept the fish for about 3 weeks before purchsing this triiger and i took him home he was okay for a while until about an hour and a half ago lies his body under the rock and bends his body to conform to the rocks. Is he okay because that is what my niger trigger did before he died from ick... is he just stressed because of the new enviornment and is hidding or do you think he is going to die. I will take any advice

Also humu triggers lay down to sleep. They will find a rock or ph and lay down on their sides like they are dead and sleep.

Thanks everybody i am really not good at this fish thing... i acclimated by adding water and soaking for a while.... I do have 2 damsles alive in the tank.... If this fish dies it will have been my 3 trigger to die... I have had 2 damsels, 1 lion, 2 triggers to die within 3 months... so if he dies i am selling my fish tank and giving up....
