Nevertheless, fish species are exceptional because some of them can live in the fresh waters as well as in seawater. They are as beautiful and some of them are very rare.

Exotic fish of all colors and types

Who said that fish is just for food? Of course, they can be very delicious for our lunch or dinner but they are also to be admired and can be domesticated if they are used to living in freshwater. Some fish species are exotic and beautiful. Here are the rarest and most beautiful of them.

Their size oscillates between less than 20 cm to 130 cm, for an average size of 30 to 40 cm. They swim all with their pectoral fins and eat coral. Parrot fish change sex during the adult phase (females will become males).
