I did a little reading up on the Fire-fish and it seems the disappearing act is not at all unusual for them when they're first introduced to a new tank. When they get hungry enough they'll venture out. Perhaps a little skinnier but ready to brave it out.

alright so he had jumped into the overflow box... got sucked through the U tube, worked his way around the sponge, rode the down pipe... and ended up in the micron sock... ALIVE.... phew!

it seems Arthur (longnose hawkfish) for some reason doesnt like him and keeps snapping at the Helfrichi... so sadly he will live in the refugium.

he's been in there for a couple days now, is out and about, and very fat hunting all the asst. pods in there.

Bummer that Arthur don't like him but glad you still get to keep him. Definitely glad he survived his adventure.
