I do once a week, sometimes twice when I feel like it. Others do every other day. Like I said, u have to play around to see what works best for u. If it's not fed, it won't open and die

So Mus is hiding under a rock. Comes out for like 10 seconds to swum by the clowns really quick then goes back to her hidey hole. Normal behavior while she gets used to the tank or should I be worried?
