Currently i have a 55 gallon tank with a senegal bichir and a jack dempsey with a pleco. The JD and the bichir are both really small. The JD is about 1 1/2 inches and the bichir is about 2 inches. When i try to sink some small cichlid pellets i notice that if the JD doesn't already devour them the bichir will literally bump into the pellet smell it and eat it. I'm worried that he is not getting enough to eat. I bought some frozen blood worms and it makes a huge mess since the JD can't eat it fast enough and the food just goes all over. Is there something i can feed him that will sink and that he is able to swallow? Also is it normal for a pleco that has just been introduced to a tank to bury itself under a clay pot in sand?
