Jason Owen's Cacutoides
I have tried cacutoides twice with the same result ; Male kills all
other dwarf cockatoos then promptly commits suicide by ramming into the front
glass. In the little time it took them to do that I never found them to be
shy or shy about eating.
I provided plenty of hiding spots and fed flake, frozen brine and frozen
bloodworm. The first attempt was in a 70 gallon community, the second in a 20
high species tank. Hope you have much better luck than I did, bloodworms
should do the trick.
As far as shyness goes, I have found that spending MORE time around
your fish will help them overcome it. Cichlids detest being netted and will
hold grudges against you for quite some time. Try sitting quietly as close to
the tank as you can get for at least 15 minutes when you feed. This has
helped a lot of my fish become great showoffs.
