I have a GBT and it did the same thing but luckily the rock it was upside down on I was able to move it to the correct position. Every time it goes underneath to where it can't get light I just change the rock position.

I would not move them around too much. They can move themselves. If it keeps going back underneath the rock I would not turn it over. Leave it where it is happy. They are not like a coral where you can place it at will.

I was told that if they do not get their light that they would die. Is this not true then?

If they need light they will move to it no need to move it, vice versa if it is getting too much light it will hide form it.

Hi all,
My GBTA is still moving underneath the rocks and it keeps going farther and farther underneath and now Big Mama (Clarkii) she has made something to the effect of a mote around the rock where my GBTA is under I am afraid if she kepts digging and pushing away the sand that the rocks will come tumbling down and break the glass.
What can I do? I have been reading through the threads here and many have said that they like medium water flow and that is actually where I had mine at but he keeps moving away from it and under the rocks.
Please help.

Mary

Hi Mary.

If you could post a couple pictures showing whats happening it would be a lot easier to understand exactly whats going on and give advice. IMHO it sounds to me like a little aquascaping is in order.

I have re-aquascaped several times now and will be again...
I am not sure how to attach the pictures to these Threads but I have them on my profile under albums (GBTA). I do not have a current picture as these where taken at different times. When I looked into the tank this morning it was even farther under the rock then what is in the picture and so was Big Mama underneath with the GBTA. Also it tentacles will not bubble they are longated. How do I get them to bubble up like they are suppose to?
