Do you have some real wood in the cave too? Cool cave but they need real wood in their diet too. They don't actually eat it but will graze from it and the fibres help in digestion.

I agree with this. ^

I have several pieces of driftwood in my 29g tank - I see mine grazing them all the time.

Ok, very good. Make sure whatever wood you get, is safe for fish. Mopani driftwood is my personal favorite.
