Husbandry

Haltung von Peter Schmiedel:

Sind, wie alle Papagiefische,reine Algenschaber und sollten sich im Normalfall nicht an Korallen vergreifen.
Bisher sind nur dann Probleme aufgetreten, wenn die Fische keine Steine mehr zum Abgrasen gefunden haben.
Also in völlig zugestellten SPS-Becken in denen man keinen Substratstein mehr sieht.

Ansonsten wie andere Scarus Arten

Actinopterygii
Perciformes
Scaridae
Scarinae
Scarus spinus (Kner, 1868)
