Electric scollop

Hi all , I bought an electric scallop at the weekend and over the last few days he's wedge himself ( or herself ) between 2rocks and has not moved ....... Looks ok and tentacles still stuck out .....should I be concerned ? Move him ( or her ) or is ths just normal?
Thanx in advance

These guys are extremely hard to keep. They will move themselves to a spot in your tank where they are happy, usually a lower flow spot with lower light. They require spot feeding as they aren't photosynthetic. Good luck with it, they don't have a very good record in the aquarium, about 6 months max normally.
