Ich kann nur jeden vor diesem Tier warnen! Es vermehrt sich sehr schnell und man bekommt es nicht mehr aus dem becken raus. Ein versuch die Krustenanemone mechanisch unter Wasser mit Handschuhen zu entfernen endete im Krankenhaus!
Also Finger weg von dem Zeug und gleich die befallenen Steine wegwerfen!!!
