The habitat of the moonfish is about 200 meters below the surface in the more tropical oceans. Moonfish tend to be more solitary, but are known to school with tuna and have no identified migration pattern, though they are commonly found near Hawaii and West Africa.
The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake.

The Hawaiian Day Octopus is part of the mollusk family, and are closely related to squid, cuttlefish, and the Nautilus. They don’t have shells, but compensate with their extremely intelligent and ability to adjust color immediately to match their surroundings. When they are startled or leave a certain area, they release an ink cloud. The objective of this ink cloud is to distract possible predators, (*kind of like in Mario Kart when your screen gets inked). They can also squeeze themselves into tiny cracks. The average lifespan for a Hawaiian Day Octopus is about 1-3 years. They normally only mate once in their lives. They can be anywhere from ½ inch - 3 feet long. Their main source of food is crabs. * The reason you get inked by your competitors
The Anglerfish has a symbiotic relationship of parasitism. The male Angler Fish will attach onto the female Anglerfish with his teeth and over time he will fuse with the female Anglerfish, and use up the resources of the female Anglerfish. A female Anglerfish can have 6 male Anglerfish attached at a time. When the female Anglerfish
Its body is slim and egg-shaped shaped in cross section. The corner of the mouth spread out past the eye, this is why it’s called the largemouth bass. (Bailey, et al., 2004; Boschung, et al., 2004) Young largemouth basses eats zooplankton and insects that is in the marine.
Dlnr Hawaii has written that “Mongooses are opportunistic feeders that will eat birds, small mammals, reptiles, insects, fruits, and plants. They prey on the eggs and hatchlings of native ground nesting birds and endangered sea turtles. The small Indian mongoose has been blamed with the extinction of ground-nesting birds in Jamaica and Fiji and commonly kill birds, including 8 federally listed endangered Hawaiian birds, such as the Hawaiian crow (‘alalā), petrels (ʻuʻau) and Hawaiian goose (nēnē). This research explains that mongooses feed on native animals and eggs of native animals. Mongooses have caused a large number of deaths of native Hawaiian Sea Turtles and made extinct many indigenous
These predators will eat fish, dolphins, turtles, birds, and other sharks. Bull sharks have a specific technique when they stalk. It is called the bump and bite method, and begins with the shark bumping its prey to disorientate and/or kill. They will then impale its lower jaw into its target, and then swing its head side-to-side with its upper jaw to take tissue from its victim(sharks.org). Sometimes, the sharks will hunt in groups.
They both have photophers that make them blend in with the faint light they get down in the deep water. The hatchetfish has tubular shaped eyes that are pointed downward to see prey that is below them while they are using the photophers. It can adjust its eye to where it can see extremely far away or close up. This type of fish lives between six hundred feet and four thousand five hundred feet under water. They are around three inches and feed on tiny crustaceans and animal plankton.
Koi are or more specifically in Japan as nishikigoi translated to brocaded carp, they are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi has many varieties that are distinguished by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Some of the major colors are in Koi white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream. The most popular category of koi is the Gosanke, which is made up of the Kohaku, Taisho Sanshoku, and Showa Sanshoku varieties. They are different kinds of koi.
It lives in waters around 2000 feet deep. They live in Coral Reefs, and they are the only catfish that do. The Coral Catfish was discovered in 1982 in the Indo Pacific. A few facts about the Coral Catfish is they have barbells on their mouth, they have a poisonous spine, and they swim in spheres. Many people keep Coral Catfish as pets, so without them many people could not have as cool homes.
“Sepia apama has a bulky body, with 10 appendages (8 short, heavy arms, and 2 larger extensible tentacles)” (Aglibot). These two retractable tentacles are used for catching prey and mating, Sepia apama mate during the Southern Hemisphere winter, June to August. When mating a male's retractable tentacles are extended completely out to make themselves look bigger and they change their color very quickly to attract a mate. They eat crabs, fish, and crustaceans, which are shrimp, lobsters, krill, and barnacles. The retractable tentacles are used to eat these organisms, by grabbing the prey they hold while Sepia apama eats away with its parrot like beak.
Within the first group, Haplochrominae, there are two subgroups. Both subgroups require different environments which is something that you should consider when setting up the tank. The first one, known as Haps, consists of open water and sand dwelling species. The second subgroup is known as mbuna, which means “rockdwellers”. The Mbuna fish are smaller, and both sexes are often brightly colored, though in some species the females may be brownish overall.
