You walk into your LFS maybe for the first time or maybe for the 100th time and something catches your eyes. The long whiskers, the color scheme, the pokadots or maybe it's the way they pile on top of each other like an army, whatever it is it makes you fall in love with the Pictus. You check out the label and read about them, maybe you observe them for awhile and you notice how active they appear to be. You decide to take a few of them home and add them to your tank. A few days later it appears you only see them during feeding time, or poking their head out of a cave or a plant, or maybe you see them zooming across the floor of the aquarium when it's not as lit up in your tank. So what gives? I think we've been mislead on the nature of these fish. I've been observing mine for quite awhile now. And a few things are very clear. -In the bright lights of the aquarium tank you have at home they are not as active as in the LFS. -They really love caves, hallow logs or anywhere to hide. -The less bright the tank, the more you will see them -And watching these fish go crazy over food is comical in a way because, well, they spazz out. -They don't mind being in a group but given enough hiding spots they will be a bit territorial if it is not a big enough spot I think we've been mislead about these fish. Any thoughts ?
