He has now closed off one of the two entrances to his new burrow with a couple of small pieces of rock, but he's still in it. He defends it quite zealously from the occasional hermit that ventures too close. He'll pick up the hermit and move it if it's a smaller one. He tries to move the larger hermits, but can't lift them. He spends some time out of the burrow, but stays close to it.

He is eating when we feed and seems to enjoy watching my two sons (age 2 and 5) even when they point at him and (against the rules) tap on the glass.

The sand is not evenly distributed around the tank. He tried burrowing in some of the deeper areas before he settled here where he's got 2 - 3 inches.

i disagree with this statement sorry
I understand your opinion scubasteve, but I am only relating my experience not stating any kind of fact. The statement you disagree with is the actual events that occurred in my tank.

I agree with you 100% that when they feel comfortable in their burrow they will not leave it, but at the same time that was my point as well. It is not their natural preference to dig under liverock and thus why I understand mine tried out several places. In my experience, the unnatural trials and retrials in my tank created a huge mess that affected all of the livestock in my tank. This is more of what I was trying to point out which I think we just interpreted differently so I most likely did not explain myself in good enough detail.
