It's actually amazing for me to find out that the maroon has claimed the side of the Aquaclear 4000 PH
/internal filter as its territory. It's probably the suctioning feel to it that attracted the maroon.
What's even more amazing for me is the fact that this juvie maroon protects that area vigilantly. Whenever the (overly hyper) Picasso trigger ends up in the maroon's territory, the slow poke maroon starts chugging towards the trigger's side like a bullet. And the trigger stops and looks at the maroon like "Whoa, what was that about?". Then the trigger swims away.
Are Picasso triggers normally gentle? They've been roomies for about 6 months now. is it because they're still both young? Would an eventual 7 inch trigger be trying to get a meal off of a 5 inch maroon?
Thanks for your feedback on this behavioral observation.
