I have a power head in my tank and turned it on today for a little while to stir things up so the filters can do their job better. But while it was on the fish seamed very scared. Will they get used to it or should I forgo the idea?

Should I turn it on now since its night, or wait till morning so someone can keep an eye on them?

Most anything new will spook them for a while, especially right now when they are still stressed from the move and new everything. A new rock in a 6 month old tank will take a while before they go near. For a bunch that's been caught, bagged and shipped and all the rest, almost anything looks dangerous. Poor things have had a lot of trauma and they are smart enough to remmember it for a while.
