    I visited Tropical World last week, and made a note of species on show, I didn't include fish, as I wanted a enjoyable visit, not one constantly writing down :p. The names are what are used on their signs, although a couple of species weren't signed.

    Please can someone who can edit zootierliste edit to the correct holding, thanks in advance.

    Are you sure they were brush-tailed bettong? I visited on Sunday and thought they looked more like potoroos. (Neither was listed on ZTL).
    I can come up with a partial list of fish if you want/if there's sufficient interest.

    It has been confirmed with another member on here, and they are Bettongs. I could also make a bit of a list.

    If I remember correctly, with the Sugar Gliders, the was sign on the enclosure saying jumping rat, but it wasn't one of those!
