Hey Gump, I didn't know that you got rid of your elephant nose. I didn't have any feeding trouble with Ralph (R.I.P.) but he was a little aggressive with other fish when he was feeding, he would shove them out of the way, and being that he was much larger, well....let's just say, one of the small corycats only has one eye :(
For anyone considering an African Elephant Nose, please be very aware that they tend to be suicidal and can escape from the smallest of openings (top of the tank). I was horrifed to find Ralph dried up on the floor behind the aquarium. He had escaped from an opening that I never would have imagined he could have fit through.
