Tropical trio no longer have to be the big fish in little pond
BRISTOL Aquarium has received no fewer than three Oscars.
The Oscars in question are a trio of exotic freshwater tropical fish donated to the Harbourside attraction after outgrowing their old home. The South American fish, which are members of the cichlid family, are close to 30 centimetres in length and have been re-homed in the aquarium's giant open-top Amazon display.
Bristol Aquarium curator Dan de Castro said: "The fish have moved from a tank which contained approximately 300 litres of water to our display here which is more than 200 times larger.
"There are two albino Oscars and a wild variety and all three are doing extremely well in their new home after a short spell in our quarantine area. The fish are naturally sociable and are clearly thriving in their spacious new environment."
