They move. That's what they do lol could be its not happy with the light and wants to hide. It will eventually realize it needs a better spot and move yet again. My nem when I had one moved for weeks.

+1 they will move where they like it maybe your lights are a little intense or on to long don't know. I moved the rock mine was attached to because he did the same thing and would not walk out so I moved it then he moved to a great location. Looks like he has color so prob healthy try that.

Read a thread here too that says his nem was hiding for 3 weeks before it moved out of the cave. I guess I just have to wait and see...

My lights are on for 6 hrs only so it can't be that long and its only at 50% right now.. :/

Mine has done exactly this. I moved the rock slightly to see what he would do. It's all about the flow and light!
