VietNamNet Bridge – The exotic fish species which has the see-through body is now a favorite of Vietnamese ornamental fish breeders. They call the fish as “ghost fish.”
The fish come from Malaysia and Indonesia. The glass fish is one
of the world’s strangest fish species.
The bones and organs inside the fish are very clear to see.
The fish is less than 10 cm long and very weak.
However, the glass fish have a unique defense: They gather together in
small school and the transparent body of each fish blends into the group.
That makes their enemies to be very difficult to identify
individual glass fish to attack.
In Vietnam, glass fish are sold in many places for about VND20,000 ($1) a pair.
They are not expensive, but it is very difficult to breed glass fish.
They require pure water and other fish.
Their food is small invertebrate animals in the water such as water beetles, larvae …
Glass fish are the best when they are bred in large schools.
