Husbandry know-how of owners

am 24.01.05#1
Ich pflege einen einzelnen dieser Fische seit etwa 3 Monaten.
Die Eingewöhnung war problemlos.
Der Fisch ist aber sehr scheu (Auch nach 3 Monaten noch). Er ist immer unter dem Riffaufbau und kommt nur kurz beim füttern raus.
Ich habe keinerlei Agressionen gegen andere Fische festgestellt. Er scheint eher unterwürfig zu sein und verzieht sich schnell.
