RBs are skittish fish. You only had him about a week that's all. Usually it will take a few weeks for them to get comfortable with new surrounding. Give it time!

My guy always hides too that why I can't get a good photo for ID. He has beecome better over a couple of months but he will always choose to hide if I go near. Food is the only thing that brings him out. He does peek out at me and won't dart away now just slowly move.

He may get better with a little time. If not you could consider removing the castle.
