Spiny chromis

These fish actively raise their young, which is unusual for saltwater fish. There are many fish that protect their eggs, but these fish are special in that they continue to protect their young even after they have hatched. The young of this species are not even a cm long, but they will swim together in schools near their parents, who protect them by scaring away predators in the area.
