Clown fish: (Amphiprion ocellaris) lives in the corel reefs and sea anemones. Despite its outgoing personality, inside it is a sad fish.
Blowfish (Tetraodontidae). Variously called puffers, balloonfish, blowfish, bubblefish, globefish, swellfish, toadfish, and toadies. They are able ignore these names completely, but not without effort.
Manta (Manta birostris) Year after year, mantas win the coolest-looking fish award. Not only is it very hard to improve upon this design, but it is also very difficult to copy.
Trigger fish: (Balistidae Fuschia). Triggerfish have a round-ish, flat body, locking fins and pointy teeth.
Sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus). That big sail on its back is called a "dorsal fin" If I could be any fish, I would seriously consider this one.
Lantern fish: (Symbolophorus barnardi). A deep-water fish that gets its name from its ability to produce light (batteries not included).
Angler (Lophius piscatorius) Also called the Goosefish, this fish attracts other fishes with its lure, and then seizes them with its formidable cartoon jaws.
Snapper (Lutjanus campechanus). This guy is a social animal. They gather in crowds around shipwrecks and reefs and make fun of the jellyfish.

Copperband Butterfly (Chelmon rostratus) Also called the "Beak Coralfish", but it really doesn’t matter what you call him. He simply has no personality.
