Hi folks.

I've been using R2R as my best and favorite resource since I got into reefing at the beginning of the year. Finally posting because I just can't find a solid answer searching.

Got a Falco Hawkfish the other day. Saw it eat (like a pig) in the store. It ate for the first two days, active and engaged in exploring.

Today...totally different. Hiding under a rock. Ignoring food. Barely moved, though looks alert.

Tank mates are generally pretty chill, although the Sailfin Tang can be a bit bossy. Usually straight away though and had ignored for the first couple of days at least.

Should I be concerned? Seems like such a drastic change from initial introduction.

Cheers for any help.

Thanks for the reply. Water mostly ok, I think the Sailfin is being a little bossy. Hawkfish is starting to get a little more bold later in the days. Coming out to feed which is a relief.

I'm not actually sure it's a Falco. Thoughts?
