my algae eater and blue dwarf gourami rareky come out of the shelter causing them to not eat so can i have some ideas ...
the algae eater.....do you know what type he is,if he is a catfish
then you could always leave him some cucumber weighed down with
a plant weight,of a cucumber screw.and when the lights are out
catfish pellets,he will be sure to find them.
the gourami are very shy by nature,you could try and plant the tank more
a backing on the tank,feed when the lights are out.
live food can sometimes entise a fish out into open water.
how long have you had the gourami ?
