I recently picked up a Radiant Wrasse and I'm starting to second guess my decision. when the fish hit my tank it swam around for a few minutes then dove under the sand. I understand this is normal if their scared and that is fine b/c I think its kinda cool. Last week my daughter seen a pair of yellow lips sticking up through the sand so I immediately thought my $70 fish was dead. I nudged it with the net and it busted out of the sand and swam around like nothing was wrong. I assumed this must be how they breath. 5 minutes later the 6 line wrasse chased him around and the Radiant immediately went under the sand again. Now I haven't seen it for almost a week. It has been in the tank for about a week and a half. I know they do this sometimes, but its going to starve if it never comes out
Any info on this fish or has anyone had one? I did some reading but I would like some first hand experiences please.
