OK.. Will Do.. Wife says he's now right side up but still in the sand..

I have alot of LR pieces down in my sump.. I should be able to find a good piece for this

I'm actually heading home right now. I'll report back in 10 mins when I can see what's going on.

ok.. Home now

BTA was in fact right side up, in the back of the tank near the little ledge he was initially hiding under.

I added a nice piece of LR from the sump that has a good spot for the BTA to attach it's base to. However, the moment my hand was in the tank, he moved under the ledge. I also moved a couple rocks around to make room for it and was completely attacked by my 2 clowns. Little Buggers kept coming

So.. now I wait and hope he moves again to a better spot. There is no way I can get to him in his current location.. If he's in the sandbed again, I'll relocate him to the new spot I set up and try the feeding method.

EDIT: Was able to reach around the tank and snap this shot with my Cellphone... not that great, but you get the idea.. He's under this ledge facing the back glass:

Hmmm... I would leave it be for now. Trying to remove it could damage the foot and you don't want to do that. From the pic it looks fairly healthy though a little bleached. Keep an eye on him and see how things go over the next few days.

I agree with Allen . Dont damage that foot or it will not make it.

UPDATE - Since my last post, the BTA had not moved.. he attached himself under that rock ledge and settled in. He looked great BTW.. But, I can't leave him there where the only way to view him is to hold a little mirror to the side of the tank.

So, Last night at lights off, I changed the direction of my waterflow. Instead of pointing the PH to the front of the tank, I pointed it to the back. Hoping a change of flow might entice him to relocate.

This morning he was still under the ledge. However, when my Actinics came on he immediatly left his spot and is now a few inches out. I'm hoping he'll move to the front of the tank now

Here's a pic of him taken just now from the front of the tank - visible behind the green rock:
