Husbandry know-how of owners

Tolles Tier, habe leider nur ein männliches Tier, noch...hatte ihn zuerst in meinem 200 l Ablegerbecken, dort war er zusammen mit Zwergkaiser, Kardinalbarschen und Blenni sehr scheu. Nach 3 Monaten hab ich ihn in das 2000 l Riffbecken mit diversem Besatz überführt. Sofort aktiv, nicht mehr scheu und ein sehr schönes aktives Tier. Frisst gut, Ein richtiger Lippfisch der leider selten im Handel ist. Meine Beobachtung hinsichtlich der Scheu hat sich bei vielen Fischen gezeigt, die ich zunächst in einem kleineren Becken gehalten habe, und dann in das große stark besetzte verbracht habe. Eine gute Fischgemeinschaft scheint es Neuankömmlingen leichter zu machen, sofern sie geduldet werden.
