    Spotted Eel-loach
    The Spotted Eel-loach, also known as the Spotted Coolie Loach or Borneo Loach, inhabits muddy, slow-flowing streams and pools in freshwater swamp forests. These small fish are elusive, lying amongst the rotting leaf litter and plant detritus on the substrate of such habitats.The species ranges from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore to Sumatra (including Riau Islands and Bangka) and parts of Borneo.

    Saddle Barb
    Typically barb-shaped, with a pronounced dorsal fin and deeply forked tail, the Saddle Barb generally inhabits clear forest streams but can also be found in less shady, open country streams. It occurs in small shoals. It can be identified in the field by a large, grey, triangular patch below the reddish dorsal fin, and sometimes a dark patch towards the base of the tail. Juveniles have other dark patches in the posterior half of the body.

    The Sebarau, or 'Hampala Barb', inhabits various aquatic habitats including clear rivers and streams, which typically flow through intact forest, with either silty, sandy or gravelly substrates. The species can also adapt to more muddy, lowland rivers and reservoirs. It is considered to be a freshwater migratory species.The word 'Hampala' derives from the Javanese name for the species. In Malaysia it is called the 'Sebarau', the name used here.

    For many years this stretch of the Tahan River seemed almost devoid of fish. During a visit in 1999 there was scarcely a single fish to be seen in these clean, unpolluted waters - the area had simply been overfished. In recent years, however, fishing has been banned in the area and it is protected as a fish sanctuary. The resurgence in the fish population seems nothing short of remarkable. A return trip in 2006 revealed a river full of fish once again.

    Pelecus cultratus

    Pelecus cultratus, known variously as the sichel, the ziege, the sabre carp or sabrefish, is a species of cyprinid fish from an Eastern Europe and adjacent Asian regions. It is the only species of its genus. This species inhabits lower reaches of rivers and brackish waters of eastern Baltic, Black, Caspian and Aral Sea basins. This fish has no major threats and the IUCN lists it as being of "Least Concern"

    Description: The ziege resembles a large Baltic herring in appearance. It grows to about 25 to 40 cm (10 to 16 in) in length.
    Distribution: It can also be found in other European and Asian countries such as Austria, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Sweden, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

    being of "Least Concern".[1]

    The ziege resembles a large Baltic herring in appearance. It grows to about 25 to 40 cm (10 to 16 in) in length. It has a keel on its belly which from the side looks curved while the back is almost straight. It has an upturned snout and the tip of the lower jaw also slopes steeply upwards. The lateral line is wavy and very low down the flank. The pectoral fin is long and pointed. This is a pale, silvery fish with almost colourless fins.[3]

    The ziege can be found in waters of the Baltic states and Eastern Europe.[4] It can also be found in other European and Asian countries such as Austria, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Sweden, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. It usually swims near the surface in estuaries and lakes and some populations live permanently in rivers and streams.[1][3]

    Biology: This fish feeds on zooplankton, swimming invertebrates such as crustaceans, small fish and floating insects. It breeds in May and June, travelling up-river to find suitable open water locations. It sometimes breeds in brackish water, for example in the Gulf of Finland. The eggs float, and in rivers, drift with the current. They hatch after about three to four days. After spawning, the migratory fish return to estuaries to feed

    Yellowback fusilier

    The yellowback fusilier (Caesio xanthonota) is a pelagic marine fish belonging to the family Caesionidae. It is native to the tropical Indo-Pacific, being found in shallow water from the African coast to Indonesia.

    Description: The yellowback fusilier is a small to medium-sized fish which grows to about 40 cm (16 in) long.[1] The mouth is small and terminal and is protusible, being able to be extended forward to swallow food. The body is fusiform or spindle-shaped. The dorsal fin has 10 spines and 14-15 soft rays. The anal fin has three spines and 11 or 12 soft rays.

    Distribution and habitat: Caesio xanthonota is widely distributed throughout the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea and Persian Gulf excluded, to Indonesia in the western Pacific Ocean.[3] It lives in mid-water in deep lagoons and close to external reefs from the surfaceto 50 m deep

    Diet: It feeds on zooplankton, so it is a planktivore.

    Wolf herring

    Both species have elongated bodies and jaws with long sharp teeth that facilitate their ravenous appetites, mostly for other fish.[2] Both species reach a length of 1 m. They have silvery sides and bluish backs.

    Species: Chirocentrus dorab (Forsskål, 1775) - Dorab wolf-herring, found in warm coastal waters from the Red Sea to Japan and Australia
    Chirocentrus nudus Swainson, 1839 - whitefin wolf-herring, found in a similar range (This species is difficult to distinguish from C. dorab; the former has a black mark on its dorsal fin. This species is also known to eat crabs in addition to its usual diet of smaller fish.)

    Commercial fisheries exist for the largest species, making them important food fish. However, the US Food and Drug Administration warns pregnant or breastfeeding women against eating tilefish and some other fish due to mercury contamination. [4][5] The smaller, exceptionally colorful species of tilefish are enjoyed in the aquarium.

    Habitat and diet: Generally shallow-water fish, tilefish are usually found at depths of 50–200 m in both temperate and tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. All species seek shelter in self-made burrows, caves at the bases of reefs, or piles of rock, often in canyons or at the edges of steep slopes. Either gravelly or sandy substrate may be preferred, depending on the species.[7]

    Phylum: Chordata
    Class: Actinopterygii
    Order: Perciformes
    Superfamily: Percoidea
    Family: Acropomatidae

    Acropomatidae is a family of fish in the order Perciformes, commonly known as lanternbellies. Acropoma species are notable for having light-emitting organs along their undersides. They are found in all temperate and tropical oceans, usually at depths of several hundred meters.[3] There are about 32 species in 5 genera.

    Members of the family are generally small, with some ranging up to 40 cm, but most no more than 15 cm. They have two dorsal fins, the first with seven to 10 spines and the second with possibly a spine in addition to eight to 10 soft rays. The anal fin has two or three spines, and the pelvic fins one spine and five soft rays.

    Temperate perch

    The name Percichthyidae derives from the Latin perca for perch and Ancient Greek ἰχθύς, ichthys for fish.
    Species: Several other Australian freshwater species also sit within the family Percichthyidae, while research using mitochondrial DNA suggests the species of the family Nannopercidae are in reality percichthyids, as well. Australia is unique in having a freshwater fish fauna dominated by percichthyids and allied families/species. This in contrast to Europe and Asia, whose fish faunas are dominated by members of the Cyprinidae carp family. (Australia does not have a single naturally occurring cyprinid species; unfortunately, the illegal introduction of carp has now established the family's presence in Australia.)
