    Dont stress dude. I kept them in the past. One went into hibernation for 3 days. I thought he died, but he was still swimming around and eating well.

    Jinx, they are lakka wrasse, no problems, when you introduce a smaller baby wrasse he may be a bit bullish for a few days, but otherwise let them be and they will be cool. definatly near the top of the best wrasse to get.

    when I got my banana, I thought I had lost him, but turned out he was only out from 9-5 (the hours that the LFS was open), after nearly 10 days and being at home on a weekend I saw him was really happy. He still went to bed from 9-5, but after a month started staying out a bit more.
