My stonecat -- about 8" long -- takes freeze dried krill from the surface.
He's under a rock or piece of bark, but heads to the surface the SECOND the
krill hits the water just in front of the Whisper outflow. How does he know
it's there? The sound of it hitting the water? I can't imagine that the
smell gets down to him that quickly.

Are other fish in the tank? My stonecat is the sole occupant of a 20 long
with lots of crevices for hiding.
