Question problems with my new yellow(canary) wrasse

i got him about 2 days ago i saw him for the first time today because hes been hiding in the sand since he was introduced, well i noticed he had red eithier on the inside or outside of his gills i couldnt determine, all my water params is perfect and all my other fish have been perfectly fine considering this is the newest addition in a little bit, anyone else have experience with these fishes? btw he was perfect when i took him home from the store im kinda concluding maybe it got irritated because of him diving into the sand? maybe he hit a rock or something on the way down im not to sure

Ya that is what likely happened. I thought with a tank if you plan to have fish that burrow in the sand you need to have "sugar" grain type sand. Basically no sharp edges like a crushed coral or larger rock style substrates. Im no expert thats for sure but I would guess that is what happened.. I dont have any experience with burrowing fish, im just getting to set up my 90 gal and am planning to get a fish or two that burrow so I was planning on using the carib sea aragamax sugar sized sand. You might want to try and get out any of the larger/sharper pieces you can see. Hopefully someone with more experience with this will chime in soon too..

Shane.
