Did you check your overflow? I'd still give it a little time, they can hide out for days if they are uncomfortable. You could try leaving the lights off and see if he'll come out. Unfortunately, I don't think the lack of seeing him in the Vortech means anything since any crab or even the bristle worms will get ahold of him and make short work of any trace.

Ha! Good plan. I went from 3/8" screen to 1/4" screen, and still had some jump. Now that I replaced my male McCosker's Wrasse I made a 1/5" screen. Hopefully that will keep everything in mine.
Good luck with the Radiant Wrasse, hopefully he is still just hiding out in the rocks.

I had one for a few years. Once in awhile he would go into a hiding spell
