    I got myself a male Leopard Wrasse to add to my tank which has a female and some Banana Wrasses.

    I dripped him for 1 1/2 hours and then introduced him to the tank. As soon as I dropped him into the tank he shot into the substrate and hasn't emerged since - that was at about 6pm last night.

    How long do they typically stay hidden for ?

    Mine was under for 2 weeks, thought he had unfortunately died but got home one day and there he was swimming about. Big relief.
