Daisy parrotfish

The Daisy parrotfish lives in the reef-associated, oceanodromous, brackish, marine, depth range 0 - 50 m environment.

The Daisy Parrotfish is classified in the Domain of eukarya because it has cells that contain membrane-bound organelles and a nucleus with a nuclear membrane. More

At night, this daisy parrotfish secretes a mucus cocoon around its entire body. Though too flimsy to stop an attack, the mucus conceals the parrotfish from predators that hunt for prey by smell or taste. More
