I have a lone Bleeding heart tetra who is Convinced he is an Aussie Rainbow. He/She schools with them, sleeps near them, fights battles against other fish with them, fights with them... Never lets the out of his/her sight! Kinda comical as he is half their size! But they tolerate the poor lone tetra!

Possible they look at the tetra as a pet of sorts??

Bristlenoses must just be friendly with pretty much anything!

the only time the tetra ignores the rainbows is at feeding time. and the tetra will steal food from his Aussie mates!

My lone red cherry shrimp follows my three amanos around like a puppy. It's kinda cute!

I saw my large gourami snuggling with my bichir the other night. 0_o

Tried to get a pic but didn't catch it in time.

Same gourami was swimming in my knife fish gang this am.
