The hermit fish

We named it "the hermit fish", because this fish usually to move nothing in the base of aquarium like doing penance, but no at feeding time, it try also to hunt the food like the other fishes. So that we called it by "the hermit fish" and belong to be a member of Predators. In Indonesia we called it with "Tapa fish". It has been three years here. I think this kind of fish is originally from Indonesia fresh water area, such as sumatera, java region, etc..

The Gobble Fish

The Gobble Fish is a red tailed cat fish, so because it very fast at hunting and swallowing food greedily we called it the gobble, hehehe..
It is an elongated catfish with a rounded snout. Three pairs of barbels are located around the mouth. The base body color is light black and little dark spots can be seen on the head. A wide, white band extends from the caudal penuncle to the tip of the snout. The belly is black, as are the fins. The caudal fin is a stunning red color. The upper tip of the dorsal fin may be orange to red.
It has been already three years since arrived here, we put it together with all the predators in one big aquarium as we told the story about "The Predators" at the beginning archive posted before.
