Default L333 feeding and care question???

I just bought a L333 yesterday but I am not sure what should I feed it? I tried hikari sinking wafer and nls 5mm sinking pellets but then it totally ignored. Also I already have some flower pot but do I still need those place cave for it?

When I first got mine, I fed them hikari algae wafers and earth worm sticks. They didnt eat it when the lights were on, I had to turn off all the lights at night and they started coming out.

Try feeding a high protien diet, they can and will eat mass quantities of it. I used to feed mine my discus recipe that included salmon,shrimp and beef heart.
