I remember some time ago posting a picture of that same phenomonon. It is true that they sit that way, one antennae back and the other forward. It is also true that the morays have most of the life in the surrounding area right there with them. They gather and hord other animals in their grottos with them.

BTW, i actually saw my first Elephant at nic 2 weeks ago. It was fantastic! i was just coming off the bottom and i see this huge dark shape come into vis. I do a clumsy 180 and head towards her. She exits the clearing upside down with her two foreflippers against her chest. I take a pic in desperation, hoping for at least an identifiable image, but no luck. My sense is that they are only slightly more cautious than they are curious. The one i saw was a fully mature female.
