Well I tried to attach the link but it didn't work. But here they are. They are like all the other LEDs that people here are running. I got them from my lfs and everyone around here runs them. I have two over a 55 gallon about 7 inches from the top of the tank. I installed some dimmers so you can adjust bot blue and white, only problem is I'm not sure how bright is to bright. It seems like if u out them all the way up corals near the top of the tank get scorched. I places the nem about mid tank and it came from the lfs with the same lights so I'm not sure light acclimating would make a difference. Anyways it always seems to move at night when the lights are off.

It seems like it's hiding from the light

Since it moves only when light is off it must be something to do with your water circulation. It is looking for just the moderate flow which is not too strong and no flow. You might direct a small ph above where you want it to be.

It could be flow. I have 3 power heads in there. Maybe I should kill one at night?

I think you made that area as a trap. I would rearrange my LR at both corners with a space at the middle.
