This makes the King Of Herrings the longest bony fish in the entire ocean!

The Gulper fish or Eurypharynx pelecanoides is a deep sea fish with a huge mouth. This strange looking deep sea creature is also known as the Umbrellamouth Gulper or the Pelican Eel.

The Dragon Sea Moth or Eurypegasus draconis is one of the strangest fish in the world!

The Pygmy Seahorse or Hippocampus bargibanti is one of the smallest of the over 40 different species of Seahorses. This tiny creature will only grow to about 2-1/2cm in length over its lifetime and is only found on Gorgonian corals. The Pygmy Seahorse blends right into the Gorgonian corals to the point where it is very hard to even tell the difference between the coral and the Seahorse.

Doriopsilla areolata

Nudibranchs are a group of sea slugs characterized by having no shell, thus having their gills exposed. The name in latin, nudibranchia, means precisely that: nudi (nude, exposed) + branchia (gills).
Instead of the protective shell, the nudibranchs use other intricate defense mechanisms and that's one of the reasons they are such an interesting group to study. Not to mention their exquisite appearance.
