    Its hard to see from that small pic but it looks good to me. You might want to place it on the SB if thats possible. It could fall from your rockwork and get injured. If you want to place it up in the rocks I suggest you place a rock under it on the sandbed until it attaches itself. Then move it up were you want.;)
