I got my Golden Nugget on May 15th, almost 3 months ago. He seems fine, doesn't eat much of the pellets (I think) but he always feasts on zucchini and cucumber slices. He hides most of the time except when I stick the veggies on the glass with a clip, then he goes out and eats.
From time to time I see him cleaning the glass around the area where the vegies where the day before.
I know that he is supposed to grow pretty big, and definitely out grow my tank. I am getting a 50-55 gal
custom made tank this Fall (as soon as the awesome outdoor activities weather we're enjoying this summer permits and indoor project!). So far i have not noticed much growth... I wonder if he is happy.
I got a nice piece of drift wood just for him, and all kind of algae wafers and other pellets, but nothing seems to attract him much.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
