Spot Aquatic Animals at S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore

The highlights of S.E.A. Aquarium Sentosa are, of course, the sea creatures that live here. Visitors at the Aquarium can not only observe a host of brightly colored fish, but a number of wonderfully shaped corals, jellyfish, cucumbers and crustaceans that dwell in the deep blue sea.

Fried Egg Jellyfish
Fried Egg Jellyfish

One of the newest residents at S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore, the Fried Egg Jellyfish takes its name from the fact that it, quite literally, resembles a fried egg from the top. These jellies swim in swarms during the summer months, and can stretch up to 4 kilometers when grouped.

Alligator Gar
Alligator Gar

Having been around for about a 100 million years, the Alligator Gar is commonly called the ‘living fossils’. Although their razor-like teeth impart a look of fierceness, they’re actually harmless to humans. They’re clever hunters, and lie in wait for their prey before lunging at them. Alligator gars have few natural predators but coincidentally, alligators are one of them.

Black Sea Cucumber
Black Sea Cucumber

Black Sea Cucumbers have a long, black body, and stay near the seabed. The cucumbers feed on decaying matters, and often remain covered in sand and other decaying particles. Although not an active predator, the sea cucumber ejects poisonous toxins when threatened.

Black-blotched Fantail Ray

The Black Botched Ray gets its name from its appearance, with its body splotched with black spots, and its tail quite literally spreading into a fan as it swims. The Fantail Ray maintains a symbiotic relationship with other ocean dwellers: while the ray protects small fish in danger, these fish in turn, help clean bacteria off its back.

Blacktip Reef Shark
Blacktip Reef Shark

A common inhabitant of the waters around Singapore, these Blacktip reef sharks live near the reef surface. They’re often confused for the ocean blacktips, although this species is generally found in freshwater habitats and mangroves.

Blue Tang
Blue Tang

The much-adored ‘Dory’ from Finding Nemo, the Blue Tang is startling in its royal blue body and bright yellow fins. The Tang defends itself with the scalpel-like spines at the base of their bodies, although their flesh is poisonous as well. The Blue Tangs live in coral reefs, and can be abundantly found across the Indian and the Pacific Ocean.

Bowmouth Guitarfish
Bowmouth Guitarfish

Although a ray fish, the Bowmouth is often mistaken as a shark, owing to their fearsome appearance. Frequently poached for their fins, Bowmouth Guitarfish is critically endangered, and is struggling to recover in number owing to its reduced reproduction rate. The Guitarfish have strong jaws, and feed primarily on crabs and other crustaceans.

Brain Coralq
Brain Coral

One of the most marvelous creatures at the S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore, the Brain Coral quite literally and amusingly resembles the eponymous organ. The Brain Coral is regarded as the most important species in the coral family. Like other corals, the Brain Coral has stinging tentacles all over its body. They can grow to enormous sizes, and live for hundreds of years.

Bubble Coral
Bubble Coral

The Bubble Corals are hard corals that are found in shallow waters. These bubbles resemble grapes, but are actually extended tentacles. During daytime, these bubbles expand to absorb more sunlight. At night, the tentacles use this sunlight to produce food for the coral body.

Bumphead Parrotfish
Bumphead Parrotfish

One of the largest inhabitants of the coral reef, the Bumphead Parrotfish can grow up to 1.3 meters in length. The Parrotfish has fused teeth which look like a parrot’s beak. Interestingly, these fish feed on corals and sponges, and excrete undigested carbonate as white sand! In fact, a single Parrotfish can produce up to 450 kgs of sand per year.


The clownfish are small, orange fish with sharp white bands on their body. They have a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones, and live amidst their tentacles. Their bodies are covered in a layer of protective mucus which protects them from the poisonous tentacles. The clownfish communicate with each other by making clicking and popping sounds.

Decorator Crab
Decorator Crab

Decorator Crabs tend to ‘decorate’ themselves to camouflage into its environment. The corals and sponges they camouflage as are generally deterrent to predators, thus acting as a protective measure.
