NOT a 'morning person'

Haw! I've noticed that for about the first hour or so after I turn the lights on in the AM Little Dude seems to be kinda slow on the switch- if
I put food in his bowl, he seems unable to locate it, even when I tap my fingertip on the waters surface. When he's awake and alert, this brings him to the vicinity then he quickly spots the chow and attacks it, not so at wake up. Anyone else notice this in their little pals?

It strikes me funny as I have the same problem with being marginally functional in the predawn hours

Sometimes they just don't want to wake up to eat. >_> Shif does that to me all the time. And if I feed him too early in the morning he just sniffs the pellets then swims away, so I've just started feeding him later. lol

Thanks for the input Aj... the thing is, he acts interested but as though he literally can't see it- he's got me stumped . Maybe just a matter of mind/body disconnect? All good with me as long as he eats enough later (and that he does) but I feel guilty leaving him unfed until I get home about 4 PM

Maybe I ought to try giving him some coffee and a cigarette first, huh?
Works for me.....

LOL - that works for me too!!!!

I don't think it's real important what time you feed them daily as long as you feed them!!! If 4:00 pm works best for you and him, I would say it's all good. :)

I noticed that with Sam too. But if I put my finger on the surface of the water it seems to wake him up, then I put the pellets in. Sometimes I tap the water near his pellets and he wakes up enough to eat them :)

This guy's no dummy- he's figured out that if he builds his nest directly over the tank heater, he has a nice toasty place to sleep Built his own blanket, LOL....

Just amazing how much they can do with so little 'grey matter' isn't it?
