newbie with a blue tang

Hello,
I have a fully cycled 125 gallon reef tank that I just added a Blue Tang to. he is totally beautiful but likes to hide all the time. Is this normal for the Blue Hippo Tang? He is not showing any distress or illness-he just stays in the upper corner of the tank.

Welcome to AA!

How long have you had it? its common for fish to hide for a few days in their new surroundings until they get comfortable.
