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..

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?
