Outsmarted by rainbows.
Yesterday I took some food and stuck in a cave. I walked away and came right back to find rainbows circling the cave. One looked liked he'd just swallowed something big and as I watched him he hitched a bit and food escaped his mouth.
The cories eventually went over there, but I'm confident there was no food left.
So, tonight I have a towel over my tank trying to fool the rainbows to sleep and I dropped pellets in after dark. The rainbows were swarming like mad, clearly aware something hit thier watter, but unable to locate it. The cories are no where to be seen.
I'm going to have to find something to try Fishin Pole's pipe training plan with. I've tried to scrounge the house for parts with no success. I hope to make the Home Depot tomorrow. I'm thinking of a feeding station - like a t-fitting on the bottom of a pipe so the maybe the cories can get in and my river piggies can't?
Wish me luck!
