The most dangerous predators for the home aquarium
Decorative aquariums – a beautiful sight: a lush green thickets, a lovely vanity and is always a unique design. Here are just some of the hungry inhabitants of such beauty, don’t need to give up.
A freshwater aquarium can not be boring and measured, if it comes to predators. They make the home aquarium even more exotic and interesting.
Very predatory disposition and contains, as a rule, species in the aquarium. All lesser-mates he perceives as food, but with larger neighbors divides the territory up to the blood. Astronotus very high and deftly jump over the water. In nature, they thus catch insects. Especially dangerous fish to become during the spawning period, at this time, goes not only to its neighbors, and decorative items, if they are loose.
Literally armed to the teeth, plate, and razor-sharp. Of course, in the aquarium, they have lost some of their natural aggressiveness, but fearsome appearance and predatory nature remains. Piranhas live in small shoals, inside which matriarchy reigns. Very interesting in an aquarium with predators looks a gaggle of neons or guppies, where larger neighbors do not even pay attention. By the way, despite its reputation as a bloodthirsty and fearless fish, piranhas and easily scared by loud sound or bright specimages even to faint.
Very interesting and incredibly dangerous fish that can breathe atmospheric air. In nature, there have been cases when destroying young fish in its habitat, catfish crawled on shore, where they fed on insects and frogs. In the aquarium they behave more calmly, but sensing the food, did not disdain to take her even out of the mouth of other fish. On the dorsal and pectoral fins they are sharp poisonous thorns prick like the sting of bees. It is therefore particularly careful in the content need to be people suffering from allergies.
Has a very quarrelsome temper, and can get along only with large mobile neighbours. For its ability to inflate the fish was nicknamed “little Zeppelin”. But special attention deserve the aquarist dwarf tetragona, they are the smallest predators on earth and grow up to 4 cm.
Watching the small, rather quiet predator is hard to even imagine the dangers it presents in nature for their enemies. If such a fish-worm accidentally caught by a larger predator, she immediately, armed with sharp spines, which are located under each eye, and punch him in the stomach wall, and sometimes even comes out.
