Hi everyone, this is my first post on Cichlid-Forum and was wondering if someone could help me out..
Today I picked up a pair of Multies from the LFS. I left for a couple hours after introducing them to their new home and when I came back, the male was roaming around but no sign of the female. I'm sure she is in one of the shells in there, but I have no idea how much time they will spend in their shell before coming out. How long are they in the shells at a time before I should start worrying about her being stuck?
EDIT: Just after writing this, I turned on the lights that I turned off earlier to see if she would come out. Sure enough, I turn the light on and she scurries back into her shell. Still would like to know the answer to this question though for future reference
