Great green hammer coral! I want one too! And I have a yellow coris wrasse in my tank also. He's a funny fish. Buried himself in the sand immediately after we releasd him into tank, didnt see him for over a day, then suddenly popped out the sand head first and has been swimming around happily ever since. He's a pretty fish. He gets along great with the other fish, and he doesn't seem to bother my zoa, mushroom or finger coral, so I'm happy.

Thank you as soon as I seen it I had to have it lol, probably a little on the expensive side but I think it was worth it lol.
The wrasse is very cool, he was swimming round as soon as I put him in the dt then come
Night time, nowhere to be seen so I figured he was buried lol woke up this morning and he's out again lol. Nice to know he hasn't touched your corals I hope mine will have the same attitude lol.

Hey all after some info I just bought a yellow wrasse but it was an impulse buy ( i know I know, bad idea but couldn't resist), I've since been reading up on these and realised they like to lie under the Sand at night, problem is my sand bed is only about an inch and half deep and think he's having a hard time burying himself fully, he manages it in the end but takes a few attempts, now I have some sand in my sump so was wondering if I took a few cup fills of sand from the sump and placed it at the back of my tank where the wrasse likes to sleep would I see any spikes or anything?

There's a good chance of a mini cycle, rinse the sand in old tank water from a PWC this way you dont kill off any of the good stuff living in the sand

Ok thank you. Am I right in thinking I might have a mini cycle if I use new sand aswell? If there's a chance of it happening either way I'd rather buy some More and keep the sand in the sump alone?

New sand wont cause anything except a cloudy tank. Best way to go IMO
