Ok cool. I love them too and I did know that they are pretty nocturnal but not exactly know how nocturnal they are. How often do you see them? If ever?
I’ve seen a tail in the last 6 months.

I found if you make a few caves facing the front glass or at a slight angle with a bit of luck they will use one and it makes feeding a bit easier too, having said that my current tank is set up more naturally with a few smooth rocks and lots of wood/root and hardly ever see my striped Raphael same goes for my jag cat

I have both striped and spotted Raphael in my 135 gallon. My striped I see only occasionally at feeding time. I have not seen my spotted come out in at least 6 months. They both live in a fake tree stump. It's a real treat when he does come out lol.

I had a spotted in a 80 gallon tank for over a year. I saw it twice in that time span. The day I put it in and the day I took it out. Surprisingly it had doubled in size from 2" - 4"
