The Congo Tetra


This fish comes from Tropical Africa. There, in the River Congo, he was used to escaping from his enemies, so he became a fast swimmer. Now he has come to live in the aquarium. He darts up and down like a little motor-boat, so fast that you cannot get a proper look at him until he stops for a rest. And if you want to catch him you have to use a big net because he will wriggle out of a little one. He'll spin off to the side, and however hard you look, there will be no sign of him at all.
