So I walk in to find two of my boys sharing the same half of my divided tank.

And patiently waiting together at the surface for pellets to drop. No damage. No flaring. Just two guys wanting to chow down. Abel resisted being netted. He was apparently enjoying his stay.

Ben Franklin once said that fish and visitors both go bad after three days. What about fishy visitors?


˘
Wystan -- Pastel DeltaT Male -- 3 gallon
Abel Magwitch -- Wild-type RT King Male -- 20-gallon divided
Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided


§ ÷
Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?

The only time I've heard of it is very carefully bred siblings owned by OFL. Although she never recommends housing them together to others since most cannot tolerate it.

I put TDP in a breeders trap while treating him for constipation. Well, he jumped out of the trap some time during the night and I found him chilling with Taz who just swam around ignoring him.

Especially with these pictures I see of some males getting torn apart...and that's from females!

I'm glad they weren't in the mood for fighting :3

TDP did it again and chilling with the ladies. Just showing off and swimming nonchalantly.
