Husbandry know-how of owners

Kai am 08.02.13#1
Anfangs war der Seeigel nur nachts zu sehn, seit ein paar Monaten auch tagsüber wobei er nachts deutlich aktiver ist.

Er wechselt beim Verzehr jedes mal die Algensorte, Mal die Grünen, Mal Kalkrotalgen, mal Halimeda,...

Wichtig man sollte den Steinaufbau unbedingt mit Korallenkleber, Zement etc fixieren. Unser Seeigel ist vom Durchmesser her ca. 4cm an der breiteren Stelle und wirft trotz dieser geringeren Größe gern auch mal 1-2kg schweres Lebendgestein um.

SPS und Weichkorallen wurden bis jetzt nicht angegangen.
