I have the same kind of lights as you do and when I got my RBTA it was hiding too and it look a while for him to get used to the lights. These lights are capable of having a nem even on the sand thats 20" deep

That would be a nice spot. Just maintain your water circulation as is and hope it stays there.

Well he moved up there this morning and has stayed there all day today. I guess I'll see if he stays there tonight. Fingers crossed

Cover the power heads so he can't climb in. It will move till it finds the right spot. I am going to put mine in first before i add any corals and let him find the spot and go from there. My nem before i rebuilt my tank moved for a week at night. Once he found his spot didn't move for 6 years

These fixtures are stronger than people think. It will take time for it to acclimate. You may even want to diffuse some of the light for a bit.

I totally agree that they are strong. My problem is when I dim them down I don't know how dim to put them. I don't want acros to start suffering but at the same time my zoos seem to hate the high intensity and my coraline is white. I can't find a happy median.

Ok so another update on the RBTA. He settled down into an awesome spot. I can't believe it. Yay!!! But what crap few days I had with the tank. Ended up rescaping the whole tank trying to catch a potters angel going nuts on corals. Almost had the last rock out before I got him grrrr!!!! That's the last time I get any angel. I always seem to get the ones that destroy coral no matter how much I feed them. But anyways here is the nem in all his glory.
