There is no limit to human curiosity. We are curious about everything animate and inanimate in the world, and we desire to learn about it. And this desire to learn can lead us to even the most mysterious parts of the world. The most mysterious place in the world right now is undoubtedly the deepest parts of the oceans. The seas, which are home to tens of thousands of living species, greet human beings with incredible beauty as they descend into the depths. In depths where even sunlight cannot reach, almost irrational creatures can be reached. We estimate that even 10% of the oceans have not yet been discovered. However, if you wonder and try to research even what has been discovered so far, your life will probably not be enough. In this article, we will list the 10 most beautiful marine species discovered so far…
Rainbow Parrotfish (Rainbow Parrotfish)
Rainbow Parrot Fish, as the name suggests, is a very colourful fish species. The shape of its face resembles a beak. The name Parrot Fish is given because it breaks the shells of small crustaceans on the seabed and eats them. With its beautiful appearance, it has managed to rank 10th in our list of the 10 most beautiful sea creatures in the world.
The Moorish Idol, whose Latin name is zanclus cornutus, is a very small fish species. It is abundant on the Indian coast of the Pacific Ocean. It resembles a butterfly fish with distinctive yellow and black stripes on it.
The Mantis Shrimp
Mantis Shrimp is a sea creature from the crustacean family. However, due to its unique neon colours on it, we wanted to distinguish it from other crustacean species and include it in our list.
With its magnificent appearance, the Nudibranch Snail is one of the shellless snail species. The Nudibranch is an inedible creature of any bird, although its attractive appearance is a perfectly valid reason for other species to prey on it. Because Nudibranch has poisonous cells. These cells, which save them from being prey to most sea creatures, form spontaneously thanks to the poisonous creatures called Hyroid, which it eats and does not grind in their digestive system.
Discus Fish (Symphysodon)
Most of us are familiar with this name, as discus fish are a type of fish that aquarium enthusiasts often prefer to keep. The homeland of the Discuses is the Amazon River basin. They are usually fed alone in aquariums.
The Clown Triggerfish is a tropical fish that lives off the Indian coast of the Pacific Ocean. It has very attractive white, orange and yellow stamps on it. It got its name from its clown-like orange mouth. Clown Triggerfish is one of the most magnificent members of the triggerfish family with its eye-catching appearance and beauty.
Clownfish, which is a species that those who remember the movie Finding Nemo (Finding Nemo) will recognize immediately, can have very different colours other than orange and white, contrary to what is thought. It is a very suitable species to feed in the aquarium. The most important feature of Clownfish is that it can change gender. Therefore, those who keep only male Parrotfish in their aquarium should not be surprised to see their numbers increase rapidly after a while.
The Lionfish has a rather distinctive appearance when compared to other fish species. It resembles a lion with stripes on it. It can have red, brown, white, black and chestnut colours. The Lionfish, also known as the Fire Fish, is a fish species that is both beautiful and deadly due to its poison.
Young Emperor Angelfish (juvenile emperor angelfish)
Angelfish are a very attractive type of fish. With its breathtaking neon yellow and neon blue stripes, the Young Emperor Angelfish has earned its place among the most magnificent fish species. It is abundant in the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the Red Sea.
According to our research, the Mandarin Fish is the most colourful and docile of all species. The Mandarin Fish, which lives in the Pacific Ocean, stands out when compared to other marine species with its colour stripes. It is difficult to feed as it is a very sensitive fish species. Therefore, if you want to keep Mandarin Fish in your aquarium, you need to specialize in this species.
