Husbandry

Richardson, 1843

With its length of 35 cm it should only be kept in tanks of more than 2000 l.
Very rare fish in the market. Sensitive in the beginning but once acclimated easy to keep and easy to feed - even flakes and frozen food.

Diesen Doktorfisch habe ich vor ca. 1/2 Jahr bei HP in Pfaffing schwimmen sehen . Der Chef überließ ihn mir für 120 €. Seit dieser Zeit schwimmt er bei mir im 1800 ltr. Becken . Es gab keine Probleme mit den anderen Insassen. 7 Doc, 7 Lippfische einen Blaukopfkaiser u. diversen Fischen. Er schwimmt sehr mayestätisch durchs Becken. Nur mit dem Zebrasoma xanthurum gibt es manchmal kleine Kappeleien aber da lässt er sein Scalpell blitzen und dann ist wieder Frieden Alles in allem ein Gewinn für jedes große Becken.
