Yea it usually finds the low flow areas... From the pics it didn't look like there was too much exposed sand bed anyways? Could be deceiving from the distortion from the glass in the pic..

Well I didn't make it to the fish store the other day like planned but made it today. But on a sad note my wife spooked our purple stripe Dottyback into the intake of the protein skimmer and needless to say he didn't make it, On a bright not I got my first coral and a few snails today here is a pic they called it a type of hammer but I got it for 20 bucks. I get to go back in 2 weeks and I think I am going to pick up and alien eye as they had it labeled. Here is the pic of the unhappy coral in its bag

Sorry about the loss of your Dottyback, I love your Clowns, however!

Good luck with the coral and sorry about the fish.

I found hammers to be the toughest Euphyllia to keep alive. The one I have now is doing fine, but I murdered 2 or 3 of them before I got to this one.
