settling tortoise

How much time should I give my 4 inch red footed tortoise to settle in to his new home? I have him for nearly 6 weeks now. He doesn't come out of his hiding spot on his own. I have to move him next to his water dish and food bowl, but he eats normally.

Make sure you have the proper lighting and heat. Make sure he has enough humidty as well. Get a good book, or look up proper care of your redfoot from a reputable reptile store, or google for this info on the internet. He also need a proper substrate for his enclosure as well.
