White Type of Fish is a Ray?
Rays are very unique sea creatures. They have been around since the Jurassic period. There are over 600 species of rays in the world. They have flat bodies with large pectoral fins that are attached to their head. Their fins, eyes, and tails are on the upper side of their body while the mouth and gills are on the bottom. Rays do not have bones in their body, they are made out of cartilage which allows them to move more efficiently. Rays have flat stomachs so that they can dig down into the sand in the ocean and hide from predators. Rays can grow 4 inches to 20 feet. The largest ray was 6,000 pounds. Rays are beautiful majestic creatures but some types of rays that are in the stingray family can sting you with their tails that have venom in them. You want to be very careful around stingrays or even walking in the sand by the ocean.
What is So Special About a Seahorse?
Seahorses are very tiny fish, yes they are fish. They are named seahorses because of the shape of their head. There are at least 50 species of seahorses. If you are looking for seahorses they are mainly in tropical and temperate coastal waters. They like to swim by seaweed and other plants. Their tails are very flexible and they use them to grasp objects. Seahorses will find their partner and stay with them for long periods. The females can lay dozens or even hundreds of eggs at a time into the male’s pouch on their abdomen. Males then carry them until they are young. Once the male releases the babies they do not come back to the pouch, they hide from predators and find food.
Facts About Clownfish

You can find clownfish in the reef in northwest Australia, central Indonesia, and Southwest Japan. They are not very big fish, They are only about 4 inches long.
