My porcupine puffer needs help!

I have a 150g with the fish I mentioned before but added a porcupine puffer. NO ONE was picking on him and he was doing fine. Last night he was cruising the tank and now he laying down with his tail curled behind a rock. Is there anything I can do to help him? I have seen other puffers do this and be ok but does this usually happen??????

Mine will lay out on the rocks during the day. But mine eats like a pig . If you just got him it will take a while for him to eat good
