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.

Yeah, he grabs the shrimp, bites off a chunk, and then begins to molest it. He will swoop done on it, turn his body parallel to the gravel and rub himself on it. I have noticed he has begun losing his spots. Could this have anything to do with it? The thing I find weird about it is he does not do it on piece of feeders, just the shrimp and krill.
