Oh ok. Yeah, they are very easily stressed. They'll sometimes lay on the sandbed and recover the next day. Sometimes bury for weeks and be fine when they come out. Once they are comfortable, they are very hardy.no but the guy i got it from in ny had it qt’d
yup got it and i grow my own brine for the other wrassesSorry, got distracted with work for a sec.
Hmm, well I'd recommend keeping the wrasse as stress free as possible. Keep the lights down and avoid the temptation to put your hands in the tank. If she burries herself, don't try looking for her for up to a week. They can stay in the sand for quite a while when stressed.
Check her body for any injuries. Sometimes they get injured when shipping. I heard someone once mention that they can injure themselves trying to dive into the shipping bags.
Once she is out. Try enticing her with whatever food she is used to. If the original owner had her on something. Otherwise, I'd start with either live brine or blackworms. Perhaps frozen fish eggs (what's been working for me).
Keep an eye on the other fish and hermits and make sure nobody is causing her stress.
