I never saw my UDC either unless I used a flashlight at night after dark and there he would be, actively cruising around. What I did to get him out in the open is this: I bought a smallish artificial plant with big, broad bendable leaves. I folded over the leaves so that they were *thisclose* and the overhang it made provided him with comfort. It's facing the front of the tank and he hangs in there upside down all day. He barely moves but at least I can now see him. As soon as it's dark he's off & swimming!
