Husbandry know-how of owners

I have a male H. kallochroma in my tank for more than 8 months. It is said the female and juvenile have a spot near the tail, while the adult male does not, and the color is brighter for the latter.

The fish usually swims near the bottom with rapid speed during daytime, through the corals. it eats every kind of food, including most of zoogenic foods and dry green algae.

The H. kallochroma needs deep sand bed (5-10cm at least) at night, drilling into the sand to rest when the light fades out.

It is always peaceful to other fishes.

Seit fast einem Jahr in unserem Besitz, war juvenil eher braun/grau gezeichnet, jetzt färbt er sich immer mehr in orange/blau/gelb um.
Sehr schwimmfreudig und eher nervös.
Alles was ähnlich aussieht wird attackiert und gejagt bis zum Schluss. Alles andere wird ignoriert.
Schläft im Bodengrund.
Nahm schnell alles angebotene Futter an, liebt aber lebende Sandgarnelen.
Er ist gut 10-12cm groß und wächst seit längerem nicht mehr.
Alles in allem also recht einfach zu halten.
Springschutz sollte aber gegeben sein.
