Well, the new H. zollengeri I got yeaterday for FREE have really settled in well. I saw them eating a shrimp pellet and they got very active when I fed the white clouds brine shrimp and bloodworms(frozen). Even my shy Gastomayzon was down feeding on the pellets with them. The dominant Gastomyzon is very amusing as he comes into the feeding area and attempts to run everyone else away. I have seen him try to bully the larger Cobitis taenia. He flutters around on the bottom and pushes the Cobitis away. THe cobitis just moves along. Often though they will feed side by side.
