The reason i thought of moving him was because his foot is not attached below the sand yet, and i wasn't sure if the S. gigantea prefer a rock to latch on to as opposed to the sandy bottom. Have you heard that they prefer the rocks to sand ? And again, thank you for your continued advise.

all the ones i have seen in peoples' tanks have been near the sand bed. i never thought to ask. all the ones i have sold were pre-paid for, so i didn't keep them long enough for them to attach to anything.
i would still leave it be and let it decide where it wants to go.

thanks ! I will leave him B and just keep the water crystal and the light strong. Hopefully he will start to eat soon. I tried mysis shrimp today and he may have eaten a little bit of it. Hard to tell if he actually ate it to be honest as the mysis is so small. he was once again very very sticky to the touch.

Well,,, sadly when I got home from work last night I found that he had almost completely disintegrated. I am extremely sad and disappointed but wanted to thank all of you for your advise and for trying to help.
