What happens everyday when they wake up? Does the bed stay or does it dissolve away, or does it get eaten by snails?

i think someone told me that it just dissolves, but i think the hermits may eat it too.......

I have a Lubbock's, and every once in a while I see some of his mucous cocoon floating around in the morning but generally I see nothing - I have a feeling it mostly dissolves.

i've red that these do it much more often than other wrasses?

....i'm just worried about it landing on a clam or acro ??

Not all wrasses sleep in a cocoon, but those that do make one every night. Don't worry about your corals, I'm sure what doesn't dissolve right away is soon eaten by something else.
