    Hey Guys,

    I belive through the forum and other reef keepers that you can only keep one boxer, unless they caught as a mated pair. I have had a single boxer in the sump for somebody, and on saturday caught another pair and a single. I took the single and put it with the other single and kept a close eye, and too be honest there was no tension, they did play follow my leader for an hour or two, and that was it. They do seem fine, has anyone else "mixed" boxers before? Or is just that I was lucky and is it differant sexes?

    I was lucky. I managed to catch a pair and they live happily together.
    From what I can see, your shrimps seem to have accepted each other, but just monitor them.

    I caught to separate boxers about a month ago, and they joined as a pair. Mine were super little too, which probably helped. I think yours will be fine. Just feed generously so there is no competition
