Husbandry know-how of owners

Habe dieses Tier seid einiger Zeit im Aquarium. Bei mir ist das Tier fast nur Nachts zu sehen. Gräbt dann den Bodengrund nach fressbaren um. Dabei ist Sie nicht gerade zimperlich. Alles was so am Boden liegt und nicht schwer genung ist wird mind. 1x auf links gedreht. Sieht aber auch ganz witzig aus. Übergriffe auf andere Tiere konnte ich keine beobachten. Braucht auf jeden Fall genüngend Bodengrund in dem Sie sich vergraben kann.
