Flame Hawkfish Bullied

Just purchased a Flame hawkfish to go in my 75 gallon fowlr. I already have a Royal Gramma, 2 false percs., Coral Beauty and a cleaner shrimp. My royal gramma and female clown are bullying the hawkfish quite a bit. Its been less than 48hrs so far. Should I just give it some time or should I be worried. There is plenty of live rock for hiding but he doesnt want to stay hidden it seems.

If you can, catch the gramma and isolate him while the hawk acclimates to the tank. The hawk should learn to stay out of the clowns territory, which is probably why he is bullying him.
