bullet goby and live rock

I got a nice bullet goby the other day, very kewl. All my LR pretty much sits on the sand bed and he decided to build his goby pad under one of the bigger rocks. should I scoot him out of there and push all my rock into the sand so he can't get under it?

Thanks
Liz

My bullet goby dug his "house" under a big piece of LR, but I didnt have any other LR stacked on it so it could not come crashing down on him. If you have yours stacked up, it might be hazardous. just a thought

I would make sure your rock is firmly on the bottom of the tank.

Yaeh, try to "shimmy" the rock down to the bottom of the tank if you can. There's always gonna be some creature you want that might topple your rocks digging. So, if you can now, I'd consider doing it now.

Thanks, I spent last night getting the rock down best I could. Glad I did because the one rock I scooted the goby out off was almost totally undermined. What a digger!!
