Feeding behavior

1161 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  maggot
After adding shrimp and krill to my RPB's diet, I have noticed that he circles the food lying on the bottom and then flips sideways and rubs himself on the gravel and food. He only does this with non-live food. He does not do it after the food is gone and he does not do this if the food was live (such as half a feeder laying on the bottom). Has anyone else seen this behavior from their p's? Is this just something they do? Thanks for any info anyone can give.

Yep, my biggest RBP does the same thing. He stays over top of it and then rubs sideway on it. Not sure if it's like a dog marking it's territory :smile:
