The Banded Possum Wrasse is also known as the Pygmy Possum Wrasse or Arrowhead Wrasse, and it originates from the waters of the Indo-Pacific. The Banded Possum Wrasse has an arrowhead-like shape and is mostly red/orange in color with white vertical stripes when in its juvenile coloration. As the fish matures, it will darken to a deep rust color. The male and female of this species are very similarly colored, but when courting, the male will display increased color intensity. Colors may vary depending on the fish's mood.
The Banded Possum Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 30 gallons or larger. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. A single male can be kept with a group of females that is introduced prior to or at the same time as the male. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight-fitting canopy is recommended.
Meals should consist of a variety of feeder shrimp, flaked foods, and marine meats.

He has yet to come out of the rock work. He and my geometric pygmy hawk have a secret club in the back of the tank. I think they have some stone cutters nonsense back there.

If you already have your tank set up with Coral & sand subs. can you add a wrasse because I know now that they need sand to bury in.

Not all wrasses bury themselves in the sand, some build a cocoon around themselves for protection.
What type of wrasse are you considering getting and how coarse is your substrate?
