Husbandry

Kuiter & Randall, 1995

Males are readily identified by the bright red head that even looks red at depth where red light is suppressed greatly. The female is easily mistaken for other orange striped species, but has an additional ocelli at the end of the dorsal fin. Male and female very different,

Ich hatte im Laufe der Jahre 2 H.rubricephalii in meiner Obhut.Leider sind praktisch keine Weibchen zu bekommen.
Die Endgröße meines jetzigen Männchzens liegt bei ca.12cm.Die Haltung/Fütterung ist unproblematisch.Es sind aber eher zurückhaltende Lippfische, die selten im Freiwasser zu sehen sind. Man sollte ihnen Unterstände bzw. Höhlen anbieten.Selbstverständlich feiner Sand in angemessener Höhe fürs Nachtbett. Ich denke, ab 400 l gut zu halten.
