    Don't they hide like 99.9999% of the time?
    I had one once and it hid for over a year and I saw it only 3 times in like 5 years.

    Ditto for possum wrasses being pretty darn cryptic.

    I saw it and had to have it.
    The guy at Nippon (this was a while ago) said, "You will never see it, they hide all the time."
    I watch my tank carefully. He was wrong. I saw it three times in five years. for all I know it's still in the tank but I have not seen it for about two years. :)

    Your mystery wrasse might not take kindly to seeing a competitor to the 'pods.

    My cryptic six line comes out all the time, it might have to do with tank size and tankmates though. I have a blenny and a pair of clowns as a tank mates.

    We're talking possums though, not six line or cryptics :) Entirely different dispositions
