22. Banggai Cardinalfish
This tiny tropical fish has been an extremely popular fish for both the legal and illegal pet trade and is seen in record numbers in aquariums. They have been circulated in the trade since 1990, and are still at high risk of overexploitation.
23. Green Chromis
I am sure many will recognize this blue-green silver-ish friend of ours. It probably goes by more names than can ever be recorded, but it’s a common household pet. It originates from the South and Indo-Pacific ocean, mostly in lagoons and off larger shores.
24. Clownfish (and Anemone)
Everybody, don’t worry. I found Nemo. Chilling in the Anemone. Which is the name of the plant like coral that clownfish often live in, that provides them a protective barrier and hiding place from predators and helps to remove parasites.
This monstrous gorgeous unbelievable marvels of nature are my absolute favorite. Just look at that face. Should I be afraid? Should I be amused? Should I be in awe?
