8:30pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Bridgwater Area News
THIS unusual fish is being cared for at a zoo near Bridgwater after being rescued from a cardboard box.
The eight-inch long Oscar has been named Frank by staff at Tropiquaria near Washford.
The fish was found in a bag of water in a box in Portishead and brought into the centre by student Lily Ingle, who had previously worked at the centre.
Shaun Stevens, of Tropiquaria, said: “He is an attractive South American fish but they are bought small by owners often do not appreciate the size they may grow to.”
