new jawfish in hiding

3 days ago i got a yellowhead jawfish. once in the tank he found a spot and laid on the sand. he had moved to another spot by the end of the evening. in the morning, no where to be found and it is now been 2 days missing. should i be concerned?

i have a lid on the tank so he didnt jump. i know some fish will dig in and hang out in the sand, but just curious.

all my levels are good 0 am, 0 nitrite, 10 nitrate, 81 degrees, 1.23 sal. its a 10 gal that completed cycle about 4 weeks ago.

He`s probably in there. When you feed the tank you dont see him at all. Also what`s your PH with the glass lid?


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
