Joe, I agree on the softer substrate. Years ago I fount that mine became noticeably more comfortable with a sandy substrate. They really need to be able to sift the particles through their gills rather than having to spit it back out if they are to be able to simulate natural behavior. I can't over stress how much of a difference the switch to sand made. Watching them sift all day long is one of the cool parts of these fish!

I could watch rostratus all day...
