alpha rainbow problem

well the alpha turquoise rainbow has been displaying again, he is a beautiful turquoise , and last time I asked , he was hanging around where my L264 Sultan lives, under a large piece of wood. The rainbow would become yellow on top of his head and below the body stripe. NOW , he gets under the wood to display and it must be stress for the sultan. I realize he is telling him he is tank boss by doing this.

Any ideas how to stop this behavior and not stress out my Sultan ?

Give the sultan another piece of wood to hide under?

Agree, add some more decor to create extra hiding areas.
