Well, that is how some fish are. I guess it's up to you if you think he's pointless or not. He is a nocturnal fish so some amount of hiding during the day is to be expected.
I have two suggestions for you:
1) Try diffusing the light in the tank so it isn't as bright during the day. Floating plants like water lettuce are very helpful.
2) Consider adding a moonlight for nighttime viewing. The dimmer, blue light shouldn't bother him, but you'll still be able to check him out and appreciate his fishy-coolness.
