    malu nems

    hi looking for a bit of help
    i bought a malu about 2 months ago put him in and he looked realy good and did realy well untill about a week ago......
    nothing has change water tests all still the same...... nitrate went up slightly..... is now at 2 so not realy worried about that
    but hes detached and been rolling around trying to find a new spot
    have been doing alot of reading and people have said they like rock people say they like sand and people say inbetween so im guessing it depends on the nem
    any ideas how i can get him to settle again
    read that they like deep sand neer the surface closer to lights? any ideas how to achive this?
    cheers ash

    Hey the only think i have had success with is set a spot up in the tank with good flow and place the nem on a rock turn off all the power heads and return pumps for 1-2 hours and he should take to the rock if no parameters change in my experience once they attach they will stay for a long time that said some nems just move a lot more then others but if you set it on a rock with lots of room for it to open and possibly other rocks near it to wedge its foot in youll be solid for a long time. iv done this with carpets rbt and riters
    good luck
