Well, I feel like they remember the smell of certain foods. When I put a favorite in the tank (like popcorn), everyones' antenna go crazy and the dominant ones scramble over and get to it first. Or, if I put something in that no one seems to care about (like carrots), they all just ignore it.

I'm not too sure. It is an interesting thought though. I know that higher the humidity is the more activity with certain types.
Definitely will think about it :wink:
