Currently Iím housing two HM males in my larger sorority tank in those hang-on breeder boxes.
Today the male I intended on conditioning ready for spawning, escaped when his box fell in while I was cleaning.
Since it is a big tank, it took me a while to shepherd him back into his box (he eventually found it on his own), but not before Iíd taken a few photos of his adventure.
I donít think he knew what to make of so many females. He did two flares and then just spent most of his time eating and exploring. One of the CTs got a chunk of his tail, hence the grey-looking spot (don't worry, it's not the 'mystery disease' or fin rot)
As you can see from his expression, he wasnít so confident outside his little house. Iím just hoping he isnít too much of a wuss once I get him out into the spawning tank.
This last one is of him evading capture. I swear they know when you are trying to catch them.
