The Butterfly Creek aquarium includes a selection of tropical & fresh-water fish and a marine coral aquaria – both teeming with a variety of fascinating fish.

The 9 metre long tropical freshwater aquaria now hosts a collection of large cichlids including the Oscar and Jaguar cichlids along with the tropical Silver Arrowana.

Did you know…

  • Fish control their depth in the water by using their swim bladder.
  • Clown fish have a symbiotic relationship with anemone.  This is a relationship where both species benefit – the clown fish gains protection and shelter from the anemone while the providing the anemone with nutrients and scaring off potential predator fish.
  • White Sleeper Goby feed by taking a mouthful of sand and filtering it through their gills.
  • Silver Arowana are excellent jumpers and can leap more than 1.5 metres out of the water.  They are native to the Amazon and in the wild feed on fish, plants, invertebrates, turtles, snakes, rodents and even monkeys.
  • Blue Tangs can adjust the intensity of their colour from light blue to deep purple.
  • Clown Loaches can swim upside down and sleep horizontally.
