He may be blowing his crown from stress. Leave him alone, he's probably coming out at night. He will regrow the crown in time and he can eat without it . It took a couple of months for mine to regrow his crown after changing from one tank to another.

I agree he is stressed. Mine droped his crown only to regrow it a month later. Be patient and good luck

Whats the best way to plant one in your tank? I just placed him in a spot i thought is suitable and buried his roots?
Thats all I was told. Sound right to you?

Yeah that's how we did it. Put his bottom in the substrate and placed a rock sort of over where it might be. He has since attached to the rock and is doing great.
