New Carpenters Wrasse!

Just got this little fella today. Saw him flash a couple of times and was amazed! He loves swimming near the top.

What happened to yours? Mine started eating since day 1 which I'm really happy about. Wish I could see more flashing though. Anyone know what causes him to flash?

Went carpet surfing briefly, got stepped on by my daughter. Recovered then got stressed out during a power outage and didn't make the trip to the lfs.

I believe it's females or their reflection in the glass that makes the flash.

Not sure I'd mines male or female. Any clues?
