Pink fish • Pink fish

Video footage of a pink fish  and still images of all fish encountered during the ROV dives, like this one, will be passed along to taxonomists at the Smithsonian Institution for proper identification.

Also sending instruments to the ocean floor is pretty straight forward. Bringing them back up is not. Researchers studying the deep sea often use nets, cameras or robots connected to ships by cables. But a 7-mile-long cable, even if it is very strong, can break under its own weight.

The Pink fish is very peaceful and can even be a little timid. If housed with more aggressive fish species in a community tank we recommend adding the pink clownfish early so they have a chance to establish a territory before adding more aggressive specie
