Husbandry know-how of owners

am 09.07.12#1
hab diesen kerl beim tauchen sehr oft beobachtet. sehr interessanter fisch. wird auch "himmelsgucker" genannt. kann deutlich grösser als 30 cm werden und verträgt Wassertemperaturen von unter 15°C. überhaupt nicht scheu, könnte man theoretisch anfassen. (was man natürlich sein lässt)
Fûr die aquarienhaltung würde ich ihn nicht als unmöglich einstufen. er würde einen tiefen, feinen sand gebrauchen und viele kleine fische zum verputzen.
