Luci pisci can be found living in coral reefs in the Neritic Zone, which is near the shore. It is less than ~200 meters in depth. There is lots of sunlight and nutrients which are key for the survival of this fish, and this is where the organisms they feed on are found as well. They are also found in the Euphotic Zone, which is approximately 0 to 200 meters deep. Some abiotic factors are high sunlight, lots of oxygen, warm temperature, and low pressure. It can also be found in the epipelagic zone, ranged from 0 to 200 meters deep.
Physical Traits & Adaptations to Environment
The luci pisci is one of the smaller fish in the ocean. The size of this organism can range from 8-12 inches, they are not very different in that category. One traits that makes this organism well suited to live in the Neritic, Euphotic, and epipelagic zones, are the fact that it is a transparent color, it helps them protect themselves for any predators in the area.
Locomotion of a luci pisci
This organism has pectoral fins, a dorsal fin, a pelvic fin, and a caudal fin. The pectoral fins assist the fish in swimming. The dorsal enables the fish to remain upright and balanced as they swim through the water. The pelvic fin is used to travel in fast-moving water. And the caudal fin's maneuverability allow for easier movement in a coral reef.
The luci pisci has gills, it drinks seawater, and while water is lost through skin, active ion transports through gills.
