I just added my urchant yesterday and i noticed today that one of his spines is laying over to the side. he has moved around a little since i put him in but not to much.

Params
nitrate- 15-20
ph- 8.3
ammonia- 0
nitrite- 0
temp- 78-79

I know they are nocturnal so would they move around more at night
