BTA Question

I covered the power heads with filter material this time and got another BTA, I put him in a lighted part of the tank but he moved into the rock structure where there is hardly any light, isn't this a bad thing for him (isn't this suicidal)? How do I keep him in the lighted part of the tank?

Usually they will leave their foot in a shaded area and swing their head out to the light

Don't move it around you might hurt it's foot. Like the rest stated it will find the spot best suited for it's light needs.

Cool, because he just went completely under the very bottom rock. I'll let him find his way.
