Husbandry

Denna fisk, som är mycket sällsynt i handeln, känner sig väl hemmastadd i ett kar med alger. Den äter både grönsaker (alger sallad, spenat, nori mm) men även artemia, mysis och småkrill.

Den blir mycket tam och passar bra tillsammans med andra fiskar. Till och med akvaristen själv blir lätt igenkänd, och den kan gärna simma sunt händerna när man arbetar i akvariet. Fisken kräver något större akvarium och ska ha fin korallsand på botten som den sätter i sig för sin matsmältnings skull.

Wird sehr schnell sehr groß und hat sehr viel Hunger. Geht gerne mal an Korallen, hat bei mir alle Xenien abgefressen, dann kamen die Muscheln und die Gorgonien dran, trotz täglicher Fütterung mit diversen Algen und Pflanzenkost

Dieser Fisch beißt gelegentlich an Keniabäumchen und Lederkorallen. Ansonsten sehr guter Algenvertilger, der kaum eine Algenart verschmäht.

this species is one of the more reef safe rabbit fish.
