Mouth eels are large and have very large teeth, the purpose of their teeth to tear meat. Moray eels in its skin contains mucus in pojedinkih species contains a toxin. Moray eels are carnivorous and feed on other fish, crustaceans, molluscs. Moray eels are cosmopolitan, found in tropical and temperate seas, although the largest species richness of the reefs in warm oceans. Very few species occur outside the tropics or subtropics, and those who work only marginally extend beyond these regions.



Porcupinefish are medium to large size fish, and are found in shallow temperate and tropical seas around the world. Some  species are much further from the coast, where huge shoals of thousands of individuals can occur. They are generally slow.

Porcupinefish have the ability to inflate its body swallowing water or air, making it universal. This increase in size (almost double vertically) reduces the range of potential predators to those with much greater mouth. Drugi defense mechanism ensures sharp spines, which radiate from outside when the fish is inflated. Some species are poisonous, have tetrodotokin in internal organs such as ovaries and liver. This neurotoxin is at least 1200 times more powerful than cyanide. Some scientists believe that the poison is obtained several types of bacteria that are in some way to get by eating fish, because fish bred in captivity are not poisonous other scientists are skeptical of this theory. As a result of these three defense porcupinefish have few predators, although adults are sometimes prey to sharks and Orcas. Juveniles are preyed on by tuna and dolphins.


Longhorn cowfish

Longhorn cowfish, Lactoria cornuta is a series of family bokfish Ostraciidae, recognizable by its long horns protruding from the front of the head, and as one cow or bull. They are a resident of the Indo-Pacific region and can grow to 20 cm long. While a bad match home aquarium, manatee has become increasingly popular as a pet.

Adults are reef fish, often solitary and territorial, living around the sand or rubble bottom at a depth of 50 meters. They are omnivorous, feeding on benthic algae, various microorganisms, and foraminiferans that the strains from sediments, sponges, worms polichaete of sand flats, mollusks, crustaceans small, and small fish, able to feed on benthic invertebrates by blowing jets of water in sandy the substrate.


Red lionfish

The red lionfish is a venomous coral reef fish family Scorpaenidae, red Scorpaeniformes. P. volitans is naturally found in the Indo-Pacific region, but has become a big problem invasive in the Caribbean and along the east coast of the United States, along with similar species, Pterois miles. Red lionfish are dressed in white stripes alternated with red, navy or brown. Adults can grow as large as 17 inches in length, and juveniles may be less than 1 inch. They can live up to 10 godina.Riba a large poisonous spines that passes from the body such as Manet, giving it the common name lionfish. Open spines that fish inedible or deter most potential predators. Lionfish played a month and are able to disperse quickly during larval stage for expansion of its invasive region. There are definite predators of lionfish, and many organizations are promoting the harvest and consumption of lionfish in the effort to prevent further increase already high population density.


Trygonorhina fasciata

Fiddler rays or banjo shark genus, Trigonorrhina of guitarfish, family Rhinobatidae. There are two types, located along the eastern and southern coast of Australia. They are benthic in nature, favoring shallow sandy bays, rocky reefs and seagrass ležaja.Istočne fiddler is located at a depth of 120 meters and the southern fiddler at a depth of 180 meters.

Pectoral fins flattened disks fiddler rays are shorter and more rounded than others guitarfishes. Tails are slender, with well-developed caudal fin and two triangular dorsal fin. Their snouts are providne.Violinista rays are also different from others in that the anterior nasal flaps guitarfishes their nostrils expanded and merged back together in the nasal curtain reaching the mouth.


Analogous structures

Clovnfish ocellaris, percula Clovnfish or False Clovnfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a popular aquarium fish. Is highly correlated with the percula A, Orange Clovnfish or “True percula Clovnfish”, and often live in association with Sea Anemone Heteractis magnifica, using them for shelter and protection. Generally, ocellaris clovnfish are hardier and less aggressive than their counterparts percula. Both types can be found in the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific, especially in Fiji and Tonga region.

Clovnfish many structures that are analogous to other types, distinctive stripes found on clovnfish can be seen in several animals. Lampropeltis Triangulum elapsoidesor otherwise known as the Scarlet King Snake has a well defined pattern of red, black and yellow tape. These two both have a distinctive structure that are similar in use, the bands of every kind of help to deter predators if the animal is in danger. These bands also help camouflage both organisms in each of its different okruženjima.Svetlo orange base striped with white found on clovnfish allows you to sneak around fluorescent coral and Anemones.
