So i bought my first fish yesterday. It was swimming around a bit this morning, but when i got home from work it was hiding in this super tiny hole of one of my dry rocks. I don't know how it gets in and out of there but it does, but I'm afraid it might get stuck eventually. Should i fill it up with puddy when it decides to come out? Thanks

keep your light dim and avoid traffic around the tank. once it starts exploring the tank it will find more comfortable place.

It will be shy and getting used to a new environment, my baby tang hides in spots that I never knew I had, and sleeps on his side weird but cool. The fish (dish) will be fine
 

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
