Husbandry know-how of owners

Wessel am 21.02.16#1
Ich habe in meinem ersten Meerwasser Becken den grünen Argus gehabt das war 1986 ...habe ihn damals als Süsswasser Fisch gekauft und langsam umgewöhnt auf Meerwasser hat super geklappt nur der wuchs so enorm das ich ihn nach einem Jahr wider abgegeben habe von 3cm auf 10cm er ist dann in ein Mangroven Becken gekommen was ein Bekannter von mir damals hatte und war später gut 20cm gross! Eigentlich hat der Fisch im reinem Süsswasser nichts zu suchen .
