I bet he loves all those plants! Does he have a cave or 2?

Yea he does! I made one out of stones and theres a curved big piece of driftwood with a lot of coverage and shadow below it as well as a ton of plants. Now I just need to get him comfy enough to eat :p. Didnt touch a piece of shrimp nor a mussel yday.

I have absolutely no idea why this works but it adds flavor & increases appetite for fish.
