Every night now. Last two or 3 nights this guy is chillin by the new coral frags. Lol. Guess he likes the coral area at night. At least hes coming out. Hes a nocturnal animal i believe and he mostly hugs the rock crevices during day time and hides and blends in. Hes eating 1 big chunk.of krill and struck at some smaller foods but still giving time.
