Is there a technical term for this opposite of allelopathy?

I would suggest that anecdotal evidence be contributed, and maybe
some folks could try to recreate any particularly striking instances
of these phenomena. Somehow I don't think a serious scientific study
could be done, with all the disparate conditions in volunteers' tanks
and absence of controls. But it would be interesting if results were
reproduced under these different conditions.
