Husbandry know-how of owners

am 14.04.09#1
Ich halte dieses Tier seit Mitte 2005. Es ist ein sehr pflegeleichter Zeitgenosse, der sich bei mir von vorbeitreibenden Artemias ect. auch Flockenfutter ernährt.

Anfangs hatte ich Zweifel, ob dieses gut getarnte Tier im Aq. eine Gefahr für mich wegen seiner Giftigkeit darstellt, habe aber beim herumhantieren noch nie Begegnungen mit ihm gehabt. Er ist eher scheu und kommt nur sehr versteckt heraus.

Ist dieser Fisch überhaupt giftig?
