Husbandry know-how of owners

am 11.04.17#1
Ich pflege dieses schöne Tier seit ca. 1,5 Jahren, zu Anfang in einem 100l und nun in 250l Becken. Er kam zu mir über das eingesetzte Lebendgestein und wuchs dann im ersten Becken auf.

Für den Tag hat er sich eine dunklere Ecke gesucht, in der er bleibt bis das Licht im Becken ausgeschaltet ist um dann auf Futtersuche zu gehen. Bei mir frisst er die Algenbeläge auf den Steinen oder an der Rückwand und wenn ich es ihm in Nähe halte auch gern etwas Salat.
