Husbandry know-how of owners

Ich hatte das große Glück von diesem Fisch ein Pärchen zu ergattern. Bis auf ein bisschen Imponiergehabe zwischen Pseudochromis splendens und dem Paar ist nichts besonderes passiert. Den Unterschlupf von Chrisyptera taupou behauptet jetzt das neue Paar. Die beiden sind im ganzen Becken, 2,5m, unterwegs auf Futtersuche.Schön zu beobachten und sehr zu empfehlen. Im Gegensatz zu der üblichen Meinung sind sie noch sehr verträglich.
