StampNews.com recommends our readers to add these bright stamps to their collections.
First stamp depicts Rainbow fish that originates from Middle and South America and is among most frequent tropical fishes bred in aquariums. It was brought to Europe during 20th century. Males are much nicer in colours than females, partly in order that they might attract them while the other reason is to bait eventual chasers.
The second stamp contains the image of Siamese fighting fish that originates from Southeast Asia and is a characteristic example of lungfish, which apart from gills have another organ for breathing, the so called labyrinth. Most often we keep in aquariums male fishes because they are more colourful and have bigger fins than female fishes.
Angelfish that is depicted on the third stamp originates from South America, and lives in Amazon River, its tributaries and in some lakes. It was brought to Europe in the 20th century when its breeding in aquariums began. Angelfish is a monogamy fish and a pair remains together for the whole life. Because of their elegance and calmness it became one of the most often bred species in aquariums. # Goldfish
The fourth stamp depicts Goldfish that is among the most frequent pets in the world and the most favourite one in aquariums. It originates from Eastern Asia while first documents on its breeding originate from China, from the 3rd century.
At the beginning of the 17th century seafarer brought them to Europe where their breeding began at first in garden lakes, and then also in bowls. All this contributed to today's diversity in colours so that today goldfishes can be white, yellow, orange, red, brown and even completely black.
