OK, first full day in the tank.
He's actually behaving so far...WOO HOO!
Brekky was interesting. I was going to try placing two lots of food in the tank, spaced far enough apart so the other lunatics didnt get to his food.
I always turn the filter off at feed time, its a better way of making sure that all the fish get food.
Switched the filter off, opened the lid and suddenly, Smurf got all excited and started looking everywhere for food (he does these 360 degree spins lol).
He got in amongst the maniacs, which suprised me, so i thought Oh ok, lets do this.
Dropped the food in and, as usual,the other fish went ballistic which spun Smurf out a bit and he moved to the back of the tank lol.
He wasnt keen on that idea and moved to the other end of the tank which made it really easy for me to feed him so it worked out ok in the end.
Besides that, he's just playing in the flow and ignoring everyone.
Now the following is absolutely CRAZY....
the Scissortails seem to be infatuated with Smurf and get along side him and gently touch their bodies against his...ive never seen anything like it. Smurf just touches them with his feelers and there is no aggression whatsoever (im truly stunned and have no idea whats going on, its incredible).
Some weird stuff going on but so far, Smurf's really happy and enjoying himself thoroughly
