Behavior of a Rose Queen Cichlid

I recently moved my Oscar "Snoogins" into a 105G tank and got him a tank mate as well. Snoogins is about 10 inches length and pretty thick. The Rose Queen is approx. 1/3rd the size of Snoogins. The RQ seems to just hover in a corner or hide in cover right now. Or is that what they do? They have been together only 2 days this normal behavior?

Snoogins seems to be really cool with the RQ so...I would'nt think the RQ should be intimidated too much.

Thanks to anyone and everyone with a little insight to my inquiry!

a Rose Queen is a type of Kamfa, which is a type of flowerhorn, it will get more aggressive, and possibly eventually kill the oscar, i would wait and see what he turns out like, i have flowerhorns and Oscars together no problem, buti know the possiblity is there for it to not work, so keep a close eye, but the RQ will eventually be dominant over the oscar, guarunteed.
