Sedentario Policheta annelid of the family of the Sabellidi; cosmopolita, present in all the tropical seas and moderates to you.
Sedentario annelid, hermit, from the vermiforme body, of color red yellowish, evidently segmentato, lives on the marine bottom, inserted within a pergamenaceo tube, secreto from the cape, motivatings force and flexible fixed to the substrate (cliffs, sand, mud, alghe) and long approximately 25 cm.

To estremit front of the present body a boccale opening encircled from a spandrel of piumose setole that, normally, the S. Pavonina leaves to sporgere outside from the protection tube.
The setoloso spandrel constituted from two met equal not wrapped to spiral, the yellowish coloration tawny, with cross-sectional bands of several colors: white man, red, black, brown; estremit of these setole extremely fotosensibile and enough one small shadow in order to which immediately put in alarm the Annelid ritrae to the inside of the tube.

Much resistant one, for being an invertebrate, in Aquarius does not place breeding problems; a rather ombreggiato prefers to be arranged in place, in an light current, not too much strongly otherwise would annoy it forcing it to remain closed to along.
It cohabits calmly with all the fish adapted the calm and not aggressive Aquarius of barrier purch; if it comes too much annoyed the S. Able Pavonina to abandon the pergamenaceo tube and the spandrel of setole in order to move itself elsewhere.

Unfortunately during the transfer much defenseless one and ends often in order to represent an alimentary diversivo of the other hosts.
E' therefore important to choose the place in which arranging our host well, attending well in the porlo on the bottom not to tighten it, too much advisable to dig one small hole that then goes filled up sweetly in order not to stritolare the S. Pavonina.
It does not have particular requirements as far as the chemical values of the water, that it must be only very leaked and aereata, are however advisable regular oligoelement additions and bioelementi.

In nature nutre of the microplancton that they succeed to capture the setole with their constant movement, in Aquarius nutre of all us that it comes to it somministrato: plancton frozen-dry or dept freeze, mangime dry in flakes, if large this sessile Policheta chip ax also artemie and chironomus deeps freeze to you.
In conclusion an invertebrate much decorative, simple one to raise, little expensive, after all would not have to never lack in the barrier Aquarius, is of the principiante is of the acquariofilo evoluto.
