Did i place my acans well?

Is it in a good place? It's getting light but I'm worried about the bottom side not being in the light. When I glued them I didt realize the bottom part not getting light... Will it be ok? I'm so worried now. I can't even take it off the rock... Should I leave it? Also since I got them there tenticals are always out even during the day? Why could that be? I fed them mysis a day ago are they still hungry?

Ok it won't let me post a picture but my Acan are near the bottom and the top is getting light but the heads towards the bottom are not. I have T5 lighting.

if they tenticals are extended its a good thing, it means its happy. if they were retracted then its a different story.

all the acans i've kept did the best under moderate lighting. please excuse my comical narration, but pay attention to the acans- they are almost completely shielded from direct light under that eggcrate shelf.
