Husbandry know-how of owners

Gut verträglicher Einsiedler für das Riffaquarium.
Frisst so gut wie alles und ist nicht agressiv gegenüber anderen Beckenbewohnern.
Meiner Meinung nach sogar ein guter Algenfresser der bei mir auch kurze rote Algen frisst um die andere Einsiedler (Clibanarius/Calcinus) einen Bogen machen. Der Körper ist stark behaart, bei meinem Exemplar sind die "Borsten" blau gefärbt.
