Scuba Tiger (@scubatiger)

The Pegasus of the sea that refuses to take flight!
---
Here lies the Seamoth from the fish family 'Pegasidae' , a quirky looking bottom dweller armed with large wing-like pectoral fins, a snout, and bony plates that cover its body. Its earthy colouration helps it blend well to coral, rocks and sandy bottom. Which is vital, as these fishes do not fly nor swim, but walk and waddle along the sea floor.

One of the most popular creature from Greek mythology, Pegasus was a winged stallion sired by Poseidon, God of the sea. We're taking a wild guess that this embodiment of Pegasus wants to stay close to his dad, by staying grounded.
