Ich habe ein neues Video über Feuerfische auf Youtube hochgeladen

Für mich der schönste Feuerfisch. Leider sind nur wenige Tiere an totes Futter zu gewöhnen und wenn, dauert es meist Wochen. Vor dem Kauf sollte man sicherstellen, dass ausreichend Lebendfutter zur Verfügung steht. Viele Tiere verhungern sonst in der Eingewöhnung.

Ich halte meinen Feuerfisch seit zwei Wochen und er hat schon nach dem ersten tag gefressen ich schätze das es immer an dem Tier liegt und nicht an dem Becken oder wasserwerte.
Er ist eine Bereicherung für jedes Becken.
