If you ever travel to the Maldives, you might be able to see a rainbow without any rain. Meet the newly discovered rainbow-colored fish named the rose-veiled fairy wrasse in the Maldives’ “twilight zone” reefs.
According to a press release from the California Academy of Sciences, the fish can live 160 to 500 feet beneath the ocean’s surface in a “twilight zone” of unexplored coral ecosystems.
Scientifically named Cirrhilabrus finifenmaa, it is the first new species to be named by a Maldivian researcher and one of the first species to have its name derived from Dhivehi language – the national language of the Maldives.
“Nobody knows these waters better than the Maldivian people,” Academy Curator of Ichthyology Luiz Rocha said, according to the release. “Our research is stronger when it’s done in collaboration with local researchers and divers.”
