Spotted unicornfish

Unicorns may not exist, but unicornfish do! It's easy to see how this intriguing creature gets its name.

An algae eater in the coral reef, the spotted unicornfish lives in a small herd of sorts. They sport nose-like horns, but unlike other fish with similar protrusions, they don't use them to fight.

Unicornfish aren't just magical by name – they can do magic by changing colors! Unicornfish can be seen suddenly changing hue during the breeding season.
