I guess it would be OK but that`s the nature of the beast as far as them hiding. I rarely see mine as that`s the reason I was asking. Shrimps, lobsters and crabs stay hiding alot. I have a reef lobster I `ve seen maybe 7 times in 6 yrs.

They are probably upside down hiding in the rocks. You can usually see them at feedng time if you look under the rock overhangs.
