Skunk Botia needs

How can you tell if Skunk botia are content?
I am not sure what they eat..they seem to eat algae and no-see-ums. But all the green algae is gone now and they don't even snuffle anywhere that brown algae develops (I have to snorkle that out)

I sometimes not sure the smaller one is even alive! The larger one comes out in light sometimes when the meal seems too tempting.
Usually the pellets with spirolina and sometimes moist krill. But I thought they were more omnivorous feeders.
The Zebra/tiger in the tank is more than contented. And bold as brass even though he is usually the only loach out.He just hangs with the croaking gourami.
I am going to be switching them to the 18 gallon this week so they can enjoy the space.
It is too bad I have to mess with it, it is nearly a full dutch tan
