I laughed outloud reading this. HeeHee. My Dojos would do just that. I had no idea how clever, acrobatic they are, until one got into my floating fry tank, and cleaned me out. It never occured to me that the Dojos would be interested. Mine love to lounge.BotiaMaximus wrote: ** Cone Feeders and Dojos don't work so good - the Dojo's go right over the top and into the thing and hoover down all the food leaving all their tankmates to go hungry! - Weasels!!

You might want to make sure you don't have too bright of a lighting set up going as well. I use the standard old style florescent type bulbs. A single bulb 48" on my 75 gallon. This isn't good if you are trying for live plants however. But for fish only the Loaches will be much happier.
The new compact bulbs (T5, 10,000K and the others) are super bright! I think they are too much.
My Loaches also equate the light coming on with food!!! Then it stays on for the day and they stay out all day. It takes them a while to settle in, but they will.
with loach feeding i just scatter the worms across the surface of the water so all the fish can get some, there's not much hope of the worms gong to far down in the gravel as botia will dig them out plus spiney eels.
When I have Bloodworms in the cone I usually give the cone a few shakes to set some free so the boys will have something to go rooting around for later on.
IME I still stink they are good overall for keeping excess to a minimum.
