Hectors goby

Hey everyone I picked up a Hector's goby the other day drip acclimated it and put it in my tank. He immediately hid and now I notice he only comes out at night I'm afraid he's not eating or he maybe eating there is plenty of algae in the tank. I thought maybe they're nocturnal? I don't think so. Any ideas?

Yeah I noticed it wasn't until the last two-three days that it was coming out but at night.

some times when the lights are on just sit there and wait a while it will eventually come out.once it's used to seeing you it will be fine

Patience. He's still getting used to you and his new surroundings.
