Azurina is a genus of small, brightly colored fish in the family Pomacentridae, which includes damselfishes and clownfishes. They are native to the tropical waters of the western Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
Azurina species are small, typically reaching lengths of only a few inches. They have a distinctive, brightly colored appearance, with a metallic blue or green body and bright orange or yellow markings on the head and fins. They have a streamlined, oval-shaped body and a small, triangular-shaped head.
Azurina species are found in a variety of habitats, including coral reefs, seagrass beds, and mangrove forests. They are generally found in shallow waters, typically at depths of up to 30 meters.
Azurina species are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of small invertebrates and plant matter. They are known to be territorial, with males establishing and defending territories within their home range.
Azurina species are popular among aquarists, and several species are commonly kept in home aquariums. However, they can be sensitive to changes in water quality and require careful attention to maintain optimal conditions.
