Geschlechtsunterschied:weibchen haben größere bauchflossen,die sie zu einer bruttasche verhaken können und sind meist kräftiger gebaut als männchen

geschlechtswandel: vom weibchen zum männchen möglich,aber wohl nicht zwingend

Im Aquarium kaum lebensfähig, da feines Lebendfutter benötigt wird, was selbst durch viele lebende Steine kaum in ausreichender Menge zur Verfügung steht.

Das abgebildete Tier scheint Solenostomus cyanopterus zu sein.
