Hi also ich halte einen Blochs Doktorfisch wozu ich dazu sagen muß ich war lange am Rätseln was es für ein Doc. war. Ich habe ihn genommen weil er sonst Gehimmelt worden wäre und ich bin froh ihn zu haben er ist ein super Tier ca. 25 cm groß und Friedlich das besondere finde ich aber er wechselt sehr oft den Farbton von fast Weissblau bis ganz Dunkelblau.
