new from georgia

hello everyone. my name is djay and i live in georgia. i have a 50 gallon tank with a rainbow shark and a pleco not a lively tank but working on it a little at a time. plan on adding some tetras. i'm a little worried about the 2 i have in the tank now. i had a pleco that died on me from starvation because i was informed wrong on his feeding. the raninbow doesn't seem to eat and i wish he would be more lively around the tank. any advice?

heres a pic of my tank. they both like to stat in the cave the rainbow pretty much hides behind the cave under the leaves. http://s1333.photobucket.com/user/Dw...d6434.jpg.html
