Do black holes on the periphery move into the centre of a galaxy?

25 July 2012

Question

If black hole is born at the edge of a galaxy, is it eventually pulled into the centre? If so, wouldn't it create a visible distortion as it falls to the massive black hole in the centre? Or does dark matter maintain a balanced galaxy?

Thanks,

Paul
