Hello, today we visit Aquazoo Loebbecke Museum. In this aquarium, we show two fish species from Celebes, from the Sulawesi. You can see rainbowfishes and halfbeaks. You can identify the halfbeaks pretty easily because of their longer mandible. Right here in the front, you can see a male and the bigger ones with the beautiful, shiny, blue eyes are the females. They are significantly bigger than the males. Halfbeaks are viviparous and have got an internal fertilization. The males mate quickly with the females. They are so quick you can barely observe the mating. There’s still a lot to research concerning this species. In addition, this special species of halfbeaks you can see here, isn’t scientifically described yet. So, we know, it’s a nomorhamphus but be don’t know which species it really is. There is still a lot of research work to do. So, you could say that it’s is an unknown fish species you can see here. We were already successful in breeding this species and we have got a special aquarium behind the scenes where we house the offspring. We catch then shortly after birth in order to protect them from being eaten by the other fish in the pool in order to increase their chance of survival significantly.
