Habe mir die Schnecke mit Lebendgestein und Caulerpa Racemosa "eingeschleppt". Schön anzusehndes Tier das die komplette Einfahrphase problemlos überstanden hat und nun für reichlich Ableger des Caulerpa sorgt.

Es handelt sich hierbei mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit um Lobiger viridis[Pease, 1863], Haltung im Aquarium dürfte nicht so schwer sein, sie ernähren sich von Caulerpa racemosa.
