They just move around till they find a spot that is good for them. Do you have proper lighting for him? What type do you have? What are your water tests results?

Mine did that a few times. They move, that's what they do. It will learn that where it is, isn't really a good spot and it will move around some more until its happy again. Mine drove me crazy moving all the time. Once it found a spot in the back and stayed there for months!!

Made me crazy! lol


Also maybe a good idea to test parameters.

All parameters are normal. Nitrates, ammonia, phos at 0. Ph is 8.3. I have led lights. My frogspawn and toadstool look good as ever. Theyve been in there about 7 months now. I am experiencing a bit of a diatom bloom off of a new live rock. Could that be irritating it?
