My spotted raphael has dug a den under a piece of driftwood and hasn't left room between the gravel and wood to get out. It has plenty of room in the den to swim and still gets food. Do you think it will get itself out or should i give it a hand?

The raphael should easily be able to dig itself back out if it got itself in there. Many catfishes like tight squeezes to hide in, so just leave it alone.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.
