If you can redo your rock work, how about a large overhang/covered area where the lobster would be more visible??

Well that sucks. Seems like you have a smart onewho doesn't want to be watched. Suspect Looks like you may have to keep demolishing his home everytime he builds a new one. smash That is the kind of stuff I have a small plastic sand rake for.

Time may not be any help either since these critters normally hide from the lightduring the day.

Keep us posted.

You could give the clear cave a try but I am not sure that will help much. Since they are more of a nocturnal creature, they will try to find the darkest place possible.

"The cave can be designed so that the lobster can be seen during the day, but it usually will spend most of the daylight hours hiding from the light. It prefers to scavenge and hunt at night." - Foster & Smith, Inc.

Are you running any type of moon lighting in your tank? Maybe night time is the right time. Cool

I have a black light but I don't use it. I only turn the light on about an hour a day so the coral will grow. I am going to try a few things and update soon.
