Husbandry

(Valenciennes, 1835)

This Naso species needs lots of space to roam. Adults may size 90 cm and are really not suitable for home tanks.

Juveniles are very difficult to identify.

Ein immer Hungriger Fisch, der gerne in der Strömung steht und denn Bos markiert... Sehr selten in Handel... das Aquarium sollte nicht all zu Hell ausgeleuchtet sein, höherer blau ton... großzügigen Schwimmraum relertiv starker Strömung... eine große Hölle und er ist glücklich... Alles was aber einen Naso änhelt wird gejagt... Zu anderen Doktoren neutral solange sie ihn als Bos anerkennen... Fressen tut er alles Frost,Floken,Pellets..! Zur Größe der bleibt im schnitt um 60-70 cm, größere Tiere er selten auch in der Natur...
