Hi I am Dylan Hameister, I am 8 years old. This site is about fish that live in the ocean. I will put some of my favorite fish that I think are interesting and write information about them. I called this site Unerwater University because I am going to teach you about fish.


this is a glass fish. it is called a glass fish because it looks like it is made of glass because it is transparent. this fish is only 2-3 inches long. the fish eats alge. i think this fish looks very cool. this fish you can actually see through. it has a blue or yellow fin on top.  this fish is one of my favorite fish i have posted on my website because it looks clear. Thanks for looking at this fish. Dylan H

this is a blue whale. it is known as the biggest living thing on earth. It can grow to be 100-120 feet long. the blue whale eats one of the smallest things in the ocean called plankton.  they live in the pacific ocean. the lowest they live about 100 feet down in the ocean. they have blow holes on top of their heads. the blue whale is a mammal. and it goes up to the surface to get air. the blue whale can stay underwater for about 20 minutes before it must got back up to the surface of the ocean to get air. these blue whales are actually on the endangered species list. the female blue whale is bigger than the male. thank you for looking at this huge whale.

This is a box jelly fish. It is extremely dangerous. it is about the size of a human head. Its stingers can grow up to 17feet long. If a  human is stung they could die. this fish eats small fish. Its mouth is the opening of the fish. They are usually light blue and they have transparent heads. They live 200 feet down and come up to the top of the ocean for feeding.  They mostly live in the pacific ocean. Thank you for looking at this fish. Zap! Dylan

This is an archer fish. It is only 2 – 3 inches long. it spits out water to capture spiders and other bugs to have them fall into the water so the fish can eat.  They are not dangerous to humans. they live in the amazon and some other freshwater places. They are usually white with black spots or white with brown spots. In my opinion they are one of the coolest fish in the amazon because it shoots water out to capture its prey. Thank you for looking at this fish. Dylan

this an ocean sunfish. it is very weird. it only has 4 fins. it is about 5-6 feet long and about 4 feet wide. it lives in the pacific ocean. this fish lives toward the top of the ocean. it eats jelly fish and other stingers.this fish is very unusual. it is not a fish you would normally see. this fish has a flap in its mouth.Not too sure just why??  thanks for looking at this fish.

Thank you for looking at this fish. Dylan

this is a manta ray. it is about 25-30 feet long. it is the biggest kind of ray. they are not dangerous to humans but their mouth protectors can hit you if you get too close. they eat squid, crab and fish. some manta rays have white and black stripes and others have white with black strips on them. they live in the pacific and the atlantic oceans.  Thank you for looking at the Manta Ray.

This is a ribbon moray eel.The ribbon moray eel is about 5 feet long. When it is young it is not this colorful. It lives in the Pacific Ocean. This fish lives in the coral reef or near the coral reef. I guess this Moray Eel has a very colorful body. their teeth are about 1/2 inch long or shorter. This eel eats by hiding and catching small fish that swim near. this fish is not the kind of eel you’d wanna touch. it is an aggressive fish with sharp teeth. Thank you for looking at this eel.

this is a six gill shark. it lives about 4500 feet down in the ocean. The shark can grow to be as long as 16 feet long. the typical size of this shark is 10 feet. it eats fish or other small sharks like the dwarf shark. this shark is called the six gill shark because it has six gills. it has an unusual place for its dorsal fin. Normally the fin is in the middle of its body. the six gill has its dorsal fin in the very back. this shark lives in the pacific ocean. Thank you for looking. Dylan

this is an an atlantic tarpon. they are about 10 feet long. they eat big fish sometimes and small fish. they live in the atlantic ocean and in the open ocean. these fish are fast swimmers. they have a pretty good sense of smell. they live about 100′ below the ocean surface. they come up to the surface to feed. I think this fish is super cool. thanks for looking. Dylan
