I have 2 BN in one tank and when I was injecting CO2 my pH was about 6.6 I have since stopped injecting CO2 and the pH is now 7.2
With the CO2, my male BN was a lump on a log. He would swim over to anything and everything I put in the tank and sit there. He wouldn't eat it, he wouldn't rasp the glass, nothing. The female did eat a little more but nothing like she should have. Since I removed the CO2 and the pH is higher, he eats like there is no tomorrow and I mean he east anything I put in the tank from veggies to fruit, shrimp pellets, algae wafers, tetra crisps, crab bites, blood worms, anything I put in there.
So, what is your pH? Might be the cause, then again, might be just cool temperatures or the idea it likes to eat at night. Put a piece of zucchini in there just before lights out and see if it has been rasped on in the morning.
