I think you must be lucky with your F8's temperment since your flounder hasn't been pecked to death. How long have you had it? Do you give it night time feeds? What SG do you keep your tank at?

Just look at how many 20cm circles (Neale Monks recommendation) will fit across the base and don't exceed that number, stick your 'cave' in the middle of the circle and happy days
I ask because I had a flounder for a while in a mid salinity system, it did well for a few months but then one day the scats found it and picked it to death. And I had to feed mine at night because it never came out through the day and there's no risk of food hanging around until night time with a scat in the tank! It was a cool little fish but I just haven't got the right set-up for another one.
