The Blue Planet, in Copen­hagen, Den­mark, is the biggest Pub­lic Aquar­ium in North­ern Europe, and houses many dif­fer­ent species of fish from the ocean, — the dan­ish marine life, trop­i­cal reef species, birds and sea mam­mals. The Blue Planet has focus on show­ing the nat­ural biotopes and habi­tats of the species, bring­ing edu­ca­tion to the pub­lic, to school childen, — and it is one of the big­ger tourists attrac­tion in Copenhagen.

Since around 2019 the Parosphromenus Projects has had a small coop­er­a­tion with The Blue Planet. In 2017 The PP. was invited to join an exi­bi­tion of killi-​fish, which was housed and on dis­play within the Blue Planet, for a month. You can see a lit­tle exam­ple of this in the pho­tos below.

Fol­low­ing this event, — in 2019, a num­ber of the species P. cf. alfredi was donated to the Blue Planet by The Parosphromenus Project. The aim was, in the future to pos­si­bly breed these, but first of all use them in a planned dis­play, which should show some dif­fer­ent types of water, — and the parosphromenus as a black water species.

The dis­play was fin­ished in 2020, and you can also see pho­tos of this below .

The Blue Planet has since also expanded their pop­u­la­tion of parosphromenus with another species, — see that in the news-​update on this page.

The Blue Planet takes part in our Census.
