The Most Colorful Aquarium Saltwater Fish

Looking for inspiration for your saltwater aquarium? There is nothing quite like adding a new colorful variety of fish into your home to admire their vibrancy day by day. At, we have a wide range of colorful marine animals for sale, from fish to corals to crayfish. 

In this post, we’ll list some of the most colorful aquarium saltwater fish that stand to enliven your fish tank.

Angel Fish

Angle fish are a varied species of fish known for their vibrant colors and exciting patterns. They're easy to care for, which makes them an even better addition to your home aquarium. Angel fish come in various blues and yellows and often feature a range of stripe patterns. 

We have several types of angelfish for sale, including Blueface angels, blue queen angels, black french angels, bandit angels and more.

Surgeon Fish

Surgeon fish are also known as Tang and deserve a spot on any list of the most colorful aquarium fish. The surgeon fish was made famous by Dori in “Finding Nemo” and has since swum into the hearts of plenty of aquarium owners. 

Surgeonfish are salt water fish with a laterally compressed body. They are vibrant navy blue, spot black markings, and bright yellow tail or fin. Browse Surgeon Fish for sale on our website.


Next, many fish lovers are already familiar with clownfish. The name already implies how many colors these little fellows add to saltwater aquariums. They are recognizable for their white stripes on bright red bodies, though there is a lot of variety to be found. Some clownfish are black with white spots or vice versa or combine orange, black and white in extravagant and unusual patterns.

Parrot Fish

Parrot fish, like their bird counterparts, come in various colors. They usually boast a few exciting colour gradients and incredible luminescence. Typical colorations include red and orange, blue, white, yellow, and green. Additionally, parrot fish often spot delicate-looking fins with brightly colored edges.

Butterfly Fish

And finally, we recommend butterfly fish for perfectly colorful aquariums. The butterfly fish is so named after the shape of its body, which resembles the wing of a butterfly. Similarly to the vibrant insects, these fish feature various stripes and gradients on their body, making them a joy to behold.

Butterfly fish are most commonly yellow, with black and white stripes or spots. But we also sell the Haw Blue Stripe butterfly, which features vibrant blue dotted stripes across a yellow body.

Add a Combo Package

One way of adding more color and interest to your aquarium is to invest in one of our combo packages

We have a range of differently priced packages that include a choice of Turbo Snails, Nassarius Snails, Hermit Crabs and other crustaceans and molluscs. For example, our most cost-effective package contains the following:

  • 5 Turbo Snails
  • 5 Nassarius Snails
  • 5 Hermit Crabs

These have a range of advantages. For example, the Hermit Crab is a voracious scavenger and will find its way into your aquarium's tiny spaces of the live rock and sand substrate to feed on detritus and algae. 

The same applies to the Nassarius Snail, which enjoys burying itself in the sand, which helps keep adequate oxygen levels in your aquarium’s substrate. 

All in all, each of the above can form part of your aquarium’s clean-up crew, especially for areas that are hard to clean manually. In addition, we offer a choice of packages, each to suit your budget and aquarium size.


When it comes to marine aquariums, you can find a vibrant range of colours everywhere you look. At, we are proud to offer plenty of different types of colourful Angel fish for sale as well as Surgeon fish for sale. So shop for any glorious fish species mentioned above on our website today.
