Der Giftnotruf Berlin hat keinerlei Eintragung zu diesem Gift, das heißt aber nur das es noch zu keiner Vergiftung gekommen ist.

Warnung !
Der Kofferfisch ist bei mir gestorben und hat innerhalb weniger Minuten alle anderen Fische im Aquarium getötet.
Nemos, Doktoren, Mirakelbarsch, kleinere Barsche, Imperator.

Be warned. As he dies, he murdered all Otheka Fish in the tank. Occcelaris, doctors and others.

Lediglich die Krebse, Schnecken, Korallen und Anemonen sind noch am leben.

Mein Fazit : Das Risiko ist zu hoch und macht das tolle Schwimmverhalten am Ende nicht wett.

Sie holen sich den Tod für alle anderen Fische mit dem Tag des Kaufs ins Becken.

Ich durfte diesen tollen Kofferfisch ca. vier Monate pflegen. Leider starb er plötzlich von einem Abend auf den nächsten Morgen ohne Anzeichen von Krankheiten.
Ich denke, mal sollte sich sehr gut überlegen, ob man diesen Fisch wirklich so versorgen kann, wie es nötig ist.
