I've climbed Hippo Space Invaders several times. I have no memory of a bad bolt placement. Maybe you just read the route wrong??

The bolt is right where it needs to be. Stick clip it if you can't get to it any other way. That route was put up ground up and I am pretty sure the moves to it are hard. Have your belayer give you a good spot.

a very cool climb with a crux down low and a crux up high, both made immensely more manageable with precise footwork.
