Husbandry know-how of owners

Ein sehr interessanter Fisch. Er dreht gerne Steine um und schaut nach fressbarem. Und als Hobby sortiert er seine Schneckenhäuser nach größe vor seinem Versteck. Den anderen Mitbewohner verhält er sich ruhig gegenüber. Ja das einzige ist die Größe die er erreichen kann! mal sehen wie groß er im einem Aquarium wird.
