Have ever been scuba diving or snorkeling or visited a large aquarium? If so you have probably encountered all sorts of weird and wonderful fish. Graceful fish that appear to be performing some specially choreographed aquatic dance and fish that play peek-a-boo behind the rocks. There are colorful fish and even fish with razor sharp fangs that look like they would not only find Nemo and Dory, but also enjoy feasting on them. There’s something almost ethereal about these underwater worlds, they exude an air of mystery and for many a home aquarium provides a small window into life under the sea. Come dive with us to explore 8 exotic fish for your aquarium:
Formally known as Featherfin Synodontis, this attractive member of the catfish family originates from Niger, Africa. Featherfin squeakers were given their name due to the strange sound (like squeaking) they make to protect themselves from an attack. Two or more Featherfins will generally get on well and they like to play hide and seek, so ensure your tank has rocks, tunnels etc. They also have an awesome party-trick – swimming upside down! Featherfins tolerate fish of different breeds, but they are bottom feeders and prefer to be the only ones dwelling there.
