I put stainless steel legs on pieces of sandstone and set them in their enclosures and let the HLs do the rest. When the temperature gets cold enough in the garage where their indoor cages are, they will dig themselves a cave or burrow underneath for the winter. By having the legs, I can lift the cover rock off to check on them and replace it just like it was without crushing the little guys. I cut a flat edge on one side of the rock and placed it against the side of their tank and some would burrow right up to the glass and stop. This worked out well because I could watch them without disturbing them. I tape a piece of black paper on the outside of the tank to prevent light from entering but it's a simple thing to lift the paper to check.
Here are three photos to show you how this works.
