Default Mpimbwe not taking food from the surface

I was told that WC Mpimbwe is very easy to get bloat. And getting floating food from the surface is one of the major reasons causing that. My colony might know they would get into trouble if they eat from the top, so they hardly go to the surface to get food. They would stop right below the food on the surface even when are hungry. They only get food when the food is sinking. Funny !!

I think he meant Float not Bloat...people often mix the two up.
