They are out and about continually, they browse over every surface, mostly wood and rock, and the substrate, but plant leaves too. Being relatively inactive, you don't really "notice" them unless you look for them. I like them because they are unique, rather prehistoric looking, but extremely peaceful. Males are said to jostle each other, as with all Loricariidae, but damage is never done. Here's a photo of some of mine shortly after i got the red trio. I've had the large fellow for nearly 4 years now, though that is not long for these fish.
