Nice color on that one. I can definitely see why you'd want it to move. Even if you're successful, there's no guarantee it won't go somewhere else you don't want it. Despite apparently not having a brain, they have amind of their own!

You might try aiming the powerhead at the foot instead of the crown. They seem to protect their feet by hding the foot in the sand or in a rock, so I guess you're making it uncomfortable and making it want to move. (Mine keeps its foot in the sand.)

I don't know if its the same however I moved my BTA by gently tickling its foot. Eventually it lifted enough and then unstuck itself. However like mentioned above it will move to where it feels most comfortable
