Are Dwarf Otocincluses meant to be lazy?
I wanted to ask if Dwarf Otocincluses are meant to be lazy. First when we adopted our girl and boy, they were full of energy and searching for algae all the time. At food times they were already waiting on the glass and as soon as I got their vegetable (cucumber, zucchini etc) in the tank, they hopped on it and started a real crunching contest. They did this for months and then when the summer started they suddenly started hiding more and don't really come out much. Some days I have to go and search for them under the ornaments and bogwood to do my normal daily health and condition check to see that everything is fine. It's been ever since May that they don't even come for their vegetables during food times. However, often when I change the vegetable for a new one, the old one looks eaten. (This morning the cucumber slice had a hole on it.) I just never see them eating algae or veggies now. Do they eat at night time only now?
If someone knows if this is normal, I'd appreciate to hear comments.
