Anampses lennardi

Hey guys

Wednesday I become 3 lennardi 6 till 7 cm.
These fish stay for more than 2 months, maybe 3 and more, at wholesale Dejong in a coral system. Start directly tank transfer method. Temperatures and salinity was the same like in the bag. The 3 groub directly together an don't enter the sand. I put a Xanthichthys caeruleolineatus size 20cm also in tank. The lennardi are not shy. In the evening the 3 lennardi go to sand. Next day they don't come out. Could be the trigger the problem?

Thanks and greetings



Greetings Torben

I would assume they are getting acclimated to the tank since they seem to still be in hiding. Completely normal for wrasse to act this when when introduced to a new tank

Lennardi does not stand up. Today I wake up by hand and throw mysis in tank. Lennardi eat directly. The first go back to sand after one minute. The two other ones "dance" together. Head/body in 45 degrees down and turn around together in a cycle. I think they want to dominate the other one. If Mysis is in these are they eat directly. I is right to wake them up? If they are stressed I think they want not eat. What do you think?
