Feed the same as other African Rift Lake Synodontis. I use New Life Spectrum Cichlid Formula 1mm sinking pellets or same type of food from Northfin.

Feed what they can eat in 30 seconds one time daily. The goal is no food left on the substrate after 30 seconds. Watch the bellies so they are not too fat or skinny (no concave bellies).

How many do you have? How long have you had them? They usually come out for food once they are settled in the tank if you have a group of 5. Some even go to the surface although mine don't usually do that.

I would wait a month and expect them to come out for food when the other African Rift Lake cichlids eat. When you had one he/she probably did not come out because they feel unsafe as singles.

Feed the cichlids what they will in in 30 seconds...with nothing left on the substrate. See what happens in a month.
