(As for the name "vampire fish" that swims into the urinary tract of human bathers...") this is a total lie, not true. This is a history been told for nearly 100 years (or more), but never ever happened. Ask everyone who went with me to the Amazon. If they had a proof on this video they would shown it, they just show something anyone can do, and talk about it - all fake (like so often in videos/films). The only thing this Vampire catfish (parasitic fish) does, is suck the blood from other fishes by swiming into their gills (even Discus), as shown in my volume 1 of Bleher's Discus pages 226-227. And the other fish does not get harmed by that, nor ever dies. - Heiko Blehr.
