FIREFISH...

I just recently got a firefish and all my fish in the tank swarmed it! Now he is chilling under a piece of live rock in the tank. He is visible but doesn't come out to eat..Is he doomed? any ideas? I know they have "bolt holes" in the wild..

75 Gal reef
1 blue sided wrasse
1 firefish
2 Tangs (Blue, Yellow)
1 Percula
1 Longnose Hawk
1 Electric blue damsel
1 Coral beauty
1 Foxface
1 bristle star
2 linckia stars (purple, orange)
3 Emerald crabs (2 green, 1 red)
All types of coral and snails

Yeah, he should eventually calm down and come out to eat.

They are fairly shy, and from what i have read it seems like they like to stay in little wholes in rock and stuff alot, of course, alot of gobies can be like that.

What type of fish is it with?
