Im not a sw expert, but ive heard that wrasses will hide and burrow in the sand until they feel comfortable. That seems like alot of fish added at once too.

That is correct bud, they will hide until they feel comfortable, mine sleeps in the sand. He also made a little spot in the back right side just for him. Cool fish to watch. He knows every nook and cranny of my little tank lol.

They could be hiding. I only have a BC29 and I swore my orange spotted goby was dead and then one day he popped out. They find a spot and sometimes they just stay there until there ready. Don't count them out just yet.

Damsels are very very aggressive you do know that right? I had to re home 2 of my yellow tails because they would attack all my fish and even each other.
