Halte seit November 2007 eine Gruppe von 8 Tieren, deren innerartliche Aggressivität sich auch auf andere Mitglieder der Gattung Cirrhilabrus ausweitet.
Die Tiere habe ich bei Mathias Reising in Alzenau gekauft.
Futteraufnahme ist unproblematisch (Frostfutter alle Sorten).
Wassertemperatur 23°C, gute Strömung 12 Std. beleuchtet.
Zeigen ihre herrliche Farbe immer, scheinen jedoch nur männliche Tiere zu sein, konnte noch kein ablaichen beobachten.
