In my case it is essentially a mini reef. Live rock, sand, SPS caliber light, small wave pump and a skimmer.

I have an absolutely crazy story about my new bipartus leopard wrasse! It arrived yesterday from LA and was acclimated into my 29 gallon QT. After a few hours of dimmed light, I fed some frozen food for the other fish and to see if she would be interested. She actually started to pick at some food! I went to sleep confident that she would do well but woke up the next morning to an upside-down fish. Surprisingly, she was not dead and started to swim upside-down much to my surprise. I turned off all the pumps and the HOB and went to work. I came back expecting her to be dead, but when I got back she was nowhere to be seen. I looked for her and saw her perched on the powerhead. When I put my finger in the water she started to swim and has been for the last few hours. Do you know what happened? I originally thought that she had a swim bladder issue. Any ideas?

Do you have sand in the QT?

Yes, I have about 2.5" of sand in a large container on the bottom of the QT. He seems to be interested in it and currently swimming over the sandy area.

At this point Id try just putting the sand a couple inches deep directly on the bottom. Its definitely not a good sign if it wont burrow.

We need to change this poll. We certainly can keep multiple species of Leopard Wrasses. We should be able to vote multiple times.
