Kissing gouramis kiss not only fishes, but also women

Kissing gouramisFrom Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws:

In China, six tropical fish in a big aquarium in a hotel get much attention from visitors.

The fish do not just kiss each other; they also swim up to the glass to kiss women spectators wearing colourful clothes.

Strangely enough, the fish ignore male visitors.

The hotel has become a real tourist attraction.

These fish are kissing gouramis.

Are the fish all male or female, or both?

Would they kiss (the glass near) the woman on the upper photograph; and not the woman on the lower photograph?

  1. Fish takes a break from chocolate

    SEA LIFE: Aquarium staff have weaned a chocoholic giant gourami onto a healthier menu of grapes and bananas after inheriting the creature which was raised entirely on Kit Kats.

    Staff at the Sea Life London Aquarium were baffled by the 8.8lb (4kg) fish’s refusal to feed, until they learned that Gary the gourami — 15.7in (40cm) long — had been brought up on chocolate.

    So the team stuffed crushed Kit Kat pieces inside grapes to get Gary to take a break from his daily fix.
