name, location, and description
The Sunnerblum also known as Piscis translucens is a translucent fish with a light blue tint that uses its camouflaging skills as to not attract predators. This organism is fairly small and rarely exceeds the size of 12 inches. It is considered nektonic which means they can swim freely and independently. The sunnerblum lives in the euphotic zone of the ocean and inhabit coral reefs. The euphotic zone is the top layer of the ocean with light available for photosynthesis. The sunnerblum swims in large groups or schools which helps them continue on without detection.
locomotion and respiration
Sunnerblums travel from place to place by swimming. they use their tails as a sort of motor and their fins to propel themselves further and to help with steering. In order to breathe these animals use their gills to filter the oxygen from the water in order to breathe.
Abiotic Factors and Predators
Abiotic -or nonliving- factors of this layer include sunlight, water, and of course the temperature. This organism feeds on plants and plankton making the euphotic zone the location of choice due to photosynthesis. The sunnerblum however, travels quite often making it available for animals of all kinds to prey on it. predators or hunters of this animal include medium and large fish along with birds such as seagulls and puffins. The organism protects itself using the sunlight's reflection on the water to distract predators, and when in the face of danger can easily outrun opponents.
