If he's anything like other wrasses, he's buried himself in the sand. I used to have a yellow coris wrasse. Put him in tank and didn't see him for 2 days, then suddenly his head popped out of the sand, then he started to swim around. Cool fish. But for a couple weeks he would bury himself in the sand at night. It's just something they do when they're not sure if they're safe. Just be patient.

Most fish will usually hide when introduced into a new tank. The first day I had my firefish, he darted straight into a cave that looked way too narrow for him and he didn't come out until I fed the tank. It just takes patience. He'll adjust.

If its anything like my red lined wrasse, it's gonna do a lot of hiding the first 3 weeks. Don't worry, he's there
