So I got a TINY bta from lfs and he told me to put Tupperware with holes in it over top until it gets established. Now thinking, did he mean established as in like a week when it’s comfortable with my tank or until it gets it’s foot in the rock that it’s on? He seems to have found a spot because he barely moved and now he seems to be stationary, I’m going to put the rock back on my rock work so he can move freely to where he wants. When I does this should I put it in very low flow because of his size? I don’t have a picture I’m out work I can post one to follow up later

You can place it in/with rubble rock and allow it to adhere to rock then place in an area with moderate light and water flow

So it’s been 4 days now doesn’t looked bad but the last two mornings it has pooped out a brown ball. I’m guess it’s zooxanthellae? Is this just part of adjusting?
