Did you know?

The name Archerfish reflects its ability to take down prey both underwater and above the water by spitting an “arch” of water at it.

Archerfish will float near the surface of the water, waiting for its prey. Once a tasty bug is directly above them, they shoot a powerful stream of water to knock the insect into the water.

If at first, they don’t succeed, Archerfish can shoot up to seven streams in one mouthful of water.
