:they look like easterns to me, but I'll let the owner confirm.
:One thing I've noticed this year, when I only kept one holdback and he is being raised alone, is that the single baby boxie on his own in a tank is MUCH less active than the guys when they lived as a group. I have no idea why this is. Their diets are very similar, their environments very similar... very odd.
I find them to be very social animals. They do much better when they're with others than alone.
