    Wow, eating already. Did they eat on the first day? I was going to try feeding tonight but wasn't sure they would eat. Any full tank shots?

    They seem to be more comfortable when the lights are off.

    Looks like you are just floating those BW cubes. One of the cool things I like about the cubes is that they stick to the glass if you press them on. Just take a fresh cube (doesn't work well with a wet one) and immediatly press it to the glass, a couple inches down. I can't get my fingers out of the way fast enough before the discs attack it.
