Where is my Jawfish!?!

I acclimated him last night using the drip method and kept the lights off from the time I started (5pm) to this morning after the sun came up. I didn't see him last night after I put him in the tank, and today I don't see any sign of him.

There is a spot behind the rock in the corner that looks a little as if he could've burrowed there, but I can't even see his head. I thought they needed a view that showed as much of the tank as possible. Do I just need to wait or should I scare him out of the possible hole to make sure he's at least alive?

He's not small, he's about 3"

(I'll be updating my thread later with the new arrivals)

nevermind, this thread is completely pointless... he finally made his way through the other side of the largest piece of liverock I have (20lbs)

he's good!

I've gotten a lot better about being patient and waiting, instead of going in the tank trying to find them, risk crushing or even just stressing them out.
Glad you found it.
