Husbandry know-how of owners

am 11.09.11#1
Ich halte dieses Tier nun seit einem halben Jahr in 400l.
Es ist erstaunlich schwimmfreudig und eigentlich friedlich gegenüber allen anderen Beckengenossen, zu denen auch sehr kleine Garnelen gehören (Thor und Periclimenes).
Sitzt gern an erhöhten Stellen auf LPS-Korallen.

Zu Beginn hat er nur kleines Frostfutter (Calanus, Lobstereier...) gefressen, doch mitlerweile ist er mit allem, was oben rein kommt zufrieden und frisst am liebsten feines Granulat.

Ab und zu vergreift er sich an Schnecken, die auf dem Rücken liegen oder klein genug sind.

Alles in allem ein tolles Tier.
