I'd say something is def stressing him out. What are you parameters? IMO hiding is normal and even predicted, but the discoloration and spiking is what's an issue. I'd check params first, then keep a close eye on him to see of someone's bullying him.

I bumped up a thread I started a while Back. It seems to be normal activity. Mine is more comfortable after a month and a half in the tank and still swims around and flairs up. Are you giving him seaweed on clips?

I put 2x2 inch squares of seaweed in a veggie clip every night. He tears it up. I put it in the front glass. That way I can see him. Lol He loves it. You will enjoy watching him as well

Did you get to read through the other thread? Foxface looks stressed, that's what I was going through a month ago. Lol
