golden dojo just hangs there

I've been very busy with classes and work lately so I am ashamed to admit I haven't paid much attention to my tank other than feeding them.

I have noticed, though, that most of the time my little golden dojo prefers to just "hang" amongst the leaves of a tall plant - literally. A preferred position seems to be the tail propped between some leaves and the front half hangs down. Or sometimes he rolls himself into a leaf. What worries me is that he doesn't ever go anywhere else. I rarely see him on the bottom and he doesn't swim around. When I feed it's like he doesn't even notice it even when right above his head, but he looks OK. This is weird to me because my previous brown dojo was much more active and hungry. Anyone else with a golden dojo notice anything
