Husbandry know-how of owners

morrygan am 08.03.18#1
Dieser auffällige Schwamm sitzt nun schon seit fast einem Jahr unter einem Steinvorsprung in der Mittellichtzone, direkt unterhalb einer großen Kolonie Xenien. Er bekommt mäßig Strömung. Ich gebe täglich flüssiges Korallenfutter (Spurenelemente, Mineralien, Nährstoffe) von Fauna marin und zweimal pro Woche Staubfutter.

Zum Schwierigkeitsgrad kann ich wenig sagen. Er ist halt da und fühlt sich offenbar wohl.

Wie er jedoch ins Becken kam, ist mir ein Rätsel.
