My red-lined wrasse is different from my other wrasse in that it goes to sleep around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. It eats well, has a plump belly, and is very enthusiastic. My canary wrasse buries itself in the sand at around 6:30 pm, half an hour before my lights go out. There aren't any real stresses in my tank for the fish, so I'm just wondering if this is normal or not. I'd really like to see my little buddy more, and after noticing that my other wrasse has a different sleep schedule this is beginning to worry me. Any information is appreciated.

I love Gonis and Euphyllia. Maybe too much

I’ve got both a Melanurus and Blue Star Leopard, and every once in a while they’ll go to bed early, like say 4pm when the lights are still at full. If the fish is otherwise healthy I wouldn’t stress about it too much.

Some wrasses just do - I’ve got a leopard and pencil that sometimes sleep between 3-5pm and other days (like today) both are up until 8pm if not longer.
