Husbandry know-how of owners

als jungfisch sehr hübsch. wachst jedoch sehr schnell und ändert seine färbung in nicht sehr schöne brauntöne. ausgewachsen wühlt er den gesammten bodengrund durch, um sich höhlen oder laichplätze zu graben. zu anderen aquarienbewohnern ist er eher als unverträglich einzustufen.
