The purpose of this study is to describe the histological and histochemical features of digestive tract in two aquarium fishes with different types of feeding habits which are omnivorous (Walking catfish) and carnivorous (piranha), respectively. Five adult Walking catfish (L: 26.4 ± 3.4 cm, W: 265 ± 55 g) and five adult piranha (L: 23.6 ± 4.5 cm, W: 247 ± 50 g) were used for this study. The fishes were killed by decapitation method and small pieces (0.5 cm  0.5 cm) from the esophagus, cardiac… Expand
