Now it has been a total of four days for the kubotais and I have not seen them eat once. I have tried a variety of foods and they just ignore them. The almorhae is eating and swimming around, but the one of the kubotais stays hidden all the time!
Also, the kubotais freak out any time I move, is this common? Will they out grow this?
Also make sure that they have plenty of hiding spots. They will feel more secure if they know that a hiding spot is always close by. It's good that you are going to get more kubs as they are a very social fish. Five or more is a good number. Are you planning to get some buddies for the yoyo? They like friends too.
Have you tried any frozen food for them? That might coax them to eat.
The yoyo may stress them a little but I haven't seen him go to the side of the tank with the kubs yet. The yoyo just hangs out in his little upturned pot on the left end of the tank and the kubs are crowded into a little ceramic rock lookin' thing on the right end. There are throngs of plants available for cover as well.
i know it can be hard in a q tank, but can you put more caves in? i find my loaches love caves as opposed to plants, unless the growth is very thick, and it is normal to see no loaches at all in the mornings. they are all snoozing in the bogwood and shady areas and you may see a barbel or tip of tail if you are lucky.
once the yoyos have settled in, hopefully the kubs will get braver. have you tried bloodworms or hikari sinking carnivore pellets? my loaches cant resist these.
