/r/FishSaw this whilst in Málaga, Spain, last August. Anyone recognise the species of jellyfish this is?
/r/FishAnyone know what type of fish he is? He's a little under a foot long, super friendly, with pectoral fins similar to a betta fish. I thought he might be a type of loach but the tail doesn't quite match.
/r/FishThe sailfish is considered by scientists to be the fastest swimming marine creature in the world, though not all experts agree. This fish, with its super long and sharp bill, has been clocked travelling in excess of 68 mph.

/r/FishHelp! I got some new tetras about three weeks ago and since then 12 of my fish have died. This is how happening to my goldfish. I gave the tank a marine salt treatment about a week ago and am now treating for bacteria/fungus. I started 24 hours ago but he seems to be worse. Please help!!

/r/FishJapanese pineapplefish or pinecone fish can be found in sublittoral zones of the Indian and Pacific oceans, stretching from Japan to Australia and NZ. Instead of scales, these fish are covered in bony scutes. There are two phosphorescent organs on their jaws that attract bioluminescent bacteria.

/r/FishThe Obese Dragonfish relies on its large, powerful jaws and fanglike teeth, some of which grow on its tongue, to capture prey. Because much of its prey at 5000m deep has bioluminescent photophores, the Dragonfish’s stomach wall is black to ensure these lights are concealed while digesting meals.
/r/FishAnyone know if this is about to give birth? Not sure about the whole gravid spot thing is! She’s given birth many times before but a lot get eaten. I have her in a nursery this time because I thought she was close, but it feels cruel? She’s been in there two days.

/r/FishCoffinfish, sometimes called sea toads, are deep-sea dwellers that have special fins for walking on the seafloor. They also have massive, inflatable gill chambers that expand their bodies with seawater, allowing them to take up more oxygen and protect themselves from predators just as pufferfish do.

/r/FishMy fish made a hole in the spawning mop. It reminds me of a bird nest.
/r/FishThe juvenile form of the yellow boxfish is a dazzling bright yellow, but this color fades away into adulthood. It is found near ocean reefs. When attacked, this fish releases a neurotoxin from its skin that can be lethal to predators. The fish's box shape inspired Mercedes-Benz's Bionic concept car.
/r/FishThe psychedelic frogfish (Histiophryne psychedelica), first scientifically described in 2009, has a number of colorful, kaleidoscopic stripes arranged in a fingerprint pattern. The fish lives among the similar-appearing coral rubble around Ambon Island, Indonesia where it can hide from predators.
