Yea the first night he did. Glad you asked that tho do I need to add sand so he can bury when he is bigger ? Sand bed is 1.5 inches right now.

It will be harder to clean bigger sand bed. If you're up to the harder task, then you can add more sand.

Same for live plants. Fahakas are known to uproot plants. Mine bite pieces off of the plastic plants, so I never tried real plants. Just a bunch of fake decor for easier maintenance.

Finally got him to eat frozen foods for the second time. I gave him the mix i made of grocery shrimp , clams and scallops. My driftwood still won't sink but he doesn't seem to mind the bare tank .

That sucks sorry to hear that. Was he growing before he died? If not it may have been an internal parasite.
