Peter schrieb mir dankenswerter Weise seine Erfahrung zu dem Fisch:
ich kann Deinen Ausführungen über diesen Fisch nicht zustimmen . Problemloser Eingewöhnungsprozess beim Einsetzen , keinerlei Mangelerscheinungen in der Zeit seitdem er bei uns ist . Geht problemlos an alles was angeboten wird . Kein Streit mit anderen Aquarium - Bewohnern . Ich hoffe das bleibt so . Auf den Fotos erkennbar die Ansätze des Horn's
