yes. When adding a new fish I feed the existing fish and turn off the lights. Wrasses may bury them selfs for the first few days and to sleep.

They do that. They make a burrow under a rock. Once he gets comfortable and feels safe, he'll be out more.

Got a question about the firefish goby. If I add another one a week after the first will they get along?

Multiple firefish aren't compatible unless they're paired. I've only seen them alone or in schools. If you had two they'd probably compete and fight a lot.
