Can I "move" a fishes home?

Bought a Harbor goby 2 weeks ago.. ever seen him after released into the tank. Finally a few days ago my wife calls me at work and tells me she found him... He found a place to live behind some rock in the back of my tank... There a way to get him to come to the front of the tank? I really would like to enjoy the fish...

Here is a view from the side of the tank...

So you want to evict a fish in favor of some higher priced real estate down front.

Good luck.

how long have you had it? i bought one similar and took almost 8 months before it came out...i am sure it will depend on how much activity is around the tank..i had cats, dogs, and kids......i would leave it be, and maybe it will come out and u can enjoy it. I f you move it, it could become stressed and possibly try jumping out the tank
