In this blog, we give you an in-depth review of the top 3 most dangerous
fresh water fish to date. These should not be kept in an aquarium because
not only are they harmful to you, but they might harm other fish in the
tank as well. Read on to learn more.
If you’ve ever enjoyed thriller movies, then you probably already
know how dangerous piranhas can really be. These fish are among the most
notorious of their kind, and even other fish try to stay as far away from
them as possible. Piranhas are most known for their love of meat and their
ability to rip apart anything meaty within seconds.
2. Vampire Fish
The vampire fish is well-known for its teeth, which can grow up to 6 inches
long and are so sharp that they can rip through your skin in half a second.
These fish feed on smaller fish, as well as piranhas, which makes them
twice as notorious. Even though vampire fish survive in fresh water, it
is not permissible to keep them as pets or in aquariums. Their meat is
eaten popularly on the Amazon River and Peru.
The Candiru is a parasitic catfish and is slender and small to look at.
They are among the most feared species of all time, due to their small
size and ability to slip away within seconds. The Candiru has reportedly
attached itself to the urethras of humans and it is difficult to get it
out even with surgery. Candiru usually feed on gills of much larger fish,
mostly in the Amazon.
