It may take him several days to calm down and get used to his surroundings. Leave the light off more often so he can search the tank out comfortably and get used to everything. He'll come around.

I have one firemouth that spends his life in hiding. I never see him until the lights go out. :(

I hope you are feeding pellets. Frontosa's shouldn't be fed floating foods. Being a deep water species they have problems with "float" from feeding at the surface and swallowing air

The best food for them is New Life Spectrum. They have a number of sinking foods and it is highly digestible so it won't cause any problems.

provide him with lots of hiding spaces like rock ledges
