Blue
Capable of swimming backwards by rapidly flapping its wing-like pectoral fins and stout tail.

Gold An examination of its cells revealed the presence of a gene not found in HORSEA. It became a hot topic.
Silver Its fin-tips leak poison. Its fins and bones are highly valued as ingredients in herbal medicine.
Crystal The male raises the young. If it is approached, it uses its toxic spikes to fend off the intruder.
