Big fish in a little house.(Red Devil issues)

I have a Red Devil and he spends all of this time in this tiny house that I am not sure how he fits in. I was wondering should I take that out, I know some times moving their homes can stress them. But I am scared he might get stuck.

Also anyone know why he might be spending all his time in a small house when there is nothing else in that tank that can bother him?

He's likely just establishing territory. Are there any other caves in the tank that are larger than the house? If not, he may have it staked out as the best he can get. IMO, remove the house and add a larger cave. He'll adjust.

He probably picked the little house as his territory. If you put in something bigger where it is, he should be fine with it. I had to do the same with my one of my cichlids.
