I thought maybe they were just exploring their new tank, the lights come on in 2 hours so i will check on them. Maybe they are more confident with more numbers in the tank?

I cant see any dead Alphas this morning so some either did and got eaten or all are OK still lol, the cardboard is a bit ghetto but I will remove it eventually after the shrimp have settled in (its there to deflect some of the light).
And a quick video of them this afternoon, sorry for the quality i had to use my phone's camera, the SD card for my proper camera was in my shorts pocket that went into the washing machine and i don't trust putting it back into my camera :blush: :dead: :upset:

Fed the alphas 5 fish flakes that got carried away very quickly :lol: :tongue:
They continued to scavenge around for more!

edit: you can see one in the background with a pink fish flake in its claws and it turns to the camera then runs away!

Feeding time yesterday and waiting for the fish food flake to sink to the bottom, they all seem to jump out of the way when a larger tank member comes face to face with a smaller one :lol:

They seem to move around like little robots lol.
