make sure you have plenty of rock for him to hide in and sleep in at night. Be sure you don't have any other aggressive fish with him to stress him out. He'll hide for awhile until he gets used to new surroundings. here is mine

I agree with you mdchurch, I think every tank should have a place so their fish to hide and feel safe from the outside world.

Could be the temp low temp they will go to top towards the lights to try and stay warm that's what my clowns did after my power went out also hear they will go to top if nitrates are high to get 02 ( gas exchange at surface of water

Good to hear, he should be fine just has to map out his territory. If he's anything like mine he'll be all over your tank in no time. They are a beautiful fish with great personality once they get settled.
