The Shanghai Ocean Aquarium plans to add three rare fish that have never been exhibited in the country before to its collection - the freshwater lionfish, sisorid catfish and sea apples.

The sisorid catfish(above) is found in the mountain rivers of India, Myanmar and China and can grow to 12 centimeters in length. It has a flattened body with an adhesive organ on its stomach, which allows the fish to stick to rocks and maintain its position in turbulent water.
