Mine goes to sleep in a tight hole before the lights go out. I don't see him until I feed the tank the next day. After he eats he just swims in the same spot all day, then goes to sleep again.

It's really funny to me how structured his day is.

I just went snorkeling in the Bahamas and these beautiful little guys were everywhere! Really striking colors.

With really shy fish - I have found that if you add some top swimmers (in my case 4 green chromosome) they keep the hiding fish more confident. They are always out an above the rock work so the more shy fish feel comfortable.
