So for a couple months i have been keeping Benten, a blind CT, in a breeder box attached inside the sorority, because he had been having some issues eating (not able to find the food before it sank).
Well two days ago, i went to feed him, and he was nowhwhere to be seen... o.o I found him a minute later, schooling with the girls under their feeding ring! He had jumped out of the breeder box, and into the main tank! D: I freaked out for a minute before i realized they were actually HELPING him find the ring, and when i put food there, they all ate happily...
I dont understand why this is working, or hope that it will CONTINUE to work, but for now it is all good. :3 he has been doing very well with the girls, and they dont show any sign of aggression with him at all. In fact i believe they think he is a girl with long fins. lol!
Now, to make this perfectly clear, I DO NOT SUGGEST THAT EVERYONE GO OUT AND DO THIS!!! It can, and often does, end in death! I am only allowing this to continue until i see the very slightest hint of aggression, and then they are being separated again.
What do you all think about this?
(also, he has only built one bubble nest in his life, and even if there was a spawn (never gunna happen as he wouldnt be able to see the eggs, or the girl for that matter), all of the fry/eggs would be eaten by the other girls. there are no places for the fry to hide in the sorority. )
