The corydoras catfish is the latest addition to the fish on display at the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium.
The Shanghai Ocean Aquarium has introduced two new breeds of fish to celebrate the new year.
The corydoras catfish from South America, which looks like a mouse, is on display to mark the Year of the Mouse, while bowmouth guitarfish from Taiwan are very rare, officials said.
The catfish can be seen in the aquarium's South American exhibition area. Some seven to eight centimeters long, they have whisker-like markings near their mouths, giving them the appearance of mice swimming in water.
Two bowmouth guitarfish, which look like a cross between a shark and a ray, are also on display.
