I haven't seen him for a while, but that's nothing unusual with these guys, especially not in a tank that has more cave than open space.
I also suspect that he and the yellow ORA captive bred one have paired up and are spawning. At least, the yellow one always looks gravid when it comes out for food. With my wild Yellow Assessors the male is not to be seen for periods of time. This would mirror the breeding behavior of Marine Bettas.
