Husbandry know-how of owners

Kam bei mir über Lebendgestein ins Becken in der Größe von etwa 1cm, lebt sehr versteckt und ist höchstens einmal im Monat zu sehen. Scheint recht einfach in der Haltung zu sein, häutet sich auch regelmäßig, bloss das man sie eben so gut wie nie sieht, selbst im Nano-Becken.
