well he wasnt sitting out in the open. he was still up in his den. which goes up into a rock. but he was down far enough where i could see him. he uses a small peice of rock and a hermit shell for a "door". he is definitely awake during the day when the light is on though. i added 2 peppermint shrimp to the tank yesterday. everytime they came near to his den he would reach out and swat at them. i dont think it was a feeding strike because eventually he put his door back up. i ordered some shore shrimp last week but paul said they wont ship until tomorrow. im out of town now so he was he alone last night. im interested to see if he had anybody for dinner last night.
