Hi Jan,

Yes that sounds pretty normal. They do have a wide range of behaviors with males typically being less active that the females. Eating behaviors vary as well…. some will actually swim after the food eating it out of the water column and others staring at it for what seems like hours before snicking it up off the substrate.

I had a male once that I did not see eat for 6 months. He stayed hidden in the back of the tank and he was eating "in the closet". He drove me nuts with worry for a long time. He perked up when I moved them to a larger tank with better lighting go figure, not something I would have ever imagined.

HTH,

Leslie
