I know that each fish is different but do guys notice that it seems like the pygo family have a little better sense of smell than perhaps..say a serra species..May be a little to general. Over the years I notice that feeding my reds and my brothers terns they actively hunt for the food as opposed to my single species which take longer to find the food.. Just a observation..Any opinions welcome..

i am not sure that i would totally relate that just to smell. i notice wiht my irritans when i put food in their tank they hunt their food. my caribes just attack the food. my irritan will hide behind a rock until the food or feeder is near him and will attack. especially with feeders he will wait till they come close to him and will dart out take a bite, grab the food and return to behind the rock. i am not sure if that is due to smell of just different ways of catching thier prey

I think groups of fish go after food more quickly because if they do not, one of their tankmates will eat their fill. My rhom eats as soon as food goes in the water, but he is pretty laid back about it because he knows nobody else is going to come grab his meal if he doesn't swallow it all in 4 seconds flat.
