Husbandry know-how of owners

Ich hatte im Sommer 2015 gute Bekanntschaft mit dem Burschen gehabt ! In der Dänischen Ostsee in der höhe von Aalborg ,MariagerFjord ! Da ich neben meinem Meerwasser Aquarium auch noch Angler bin hatte ich den Rüpel auf einmal am Haken und unachtsam da ich mit waahthose bis zum Bauch im Wasser stand habe ich ihn gepackt und wollte ihn wider in seine Freiheit
setzen hat auch geklappt aber dabei hat er mich gestochen und ich hatte 5Tage eine dicke linke Hand !Hatte aber sonst keine Beschwerden ! Nicht für ein Aquarium Geeignet obwohl er toll aussieht
