I was actually searching for each one with their respective fishy types! I'm gonna add them all here for not loosing references too ;)!
La Squadra Mermaid type post
Specie: bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas)
Brief Description: stocky shape, broad, flat snout, and aggressive, unpredictable behavior. Since bull sharks often dwell in very shallow waters, they are found in many types of habitats, are territorial by nature, and have no tolerance for provocation, they may be more dangerous to humans than any other species of shark. but in their territory they are usually more compassionate, more protective and more understanding. They are shy until provoked.
Specie: blacktip reef shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus)
Brief Description: The blacktip reef shark has extremely small home ranges and exhibits strong site fidelity, remaining within the same local area for up to several years at a time. It is an active predator Under most circumstances, the blacktip reef shark has a timid demeanor and is easily frightened away by swimmers. However, its inshore habitat preferences bring it into frequent contact with humans, and thus it is regarded as potentially dangerous.
Specie: Siamese fighting fish / betta splendens (Red-ish fighter feather tail)
Brief Description: Bettas are well known for being highly territorial, with males prone to attacking each other if housed in the same tank; without a means of escape, this will usually result in the death of one or both fish. they look for fighters who are up to their standards and doesn't hang out with just anyone. Due to their popularity, Siamese fighting fish are highly abundant in captivity.

Specie: sailfish / Istiophorus of billfish
Brief Description: holds the record for the fastest speed of any of Earth's marine animals. They are predominantly blue to gray in colour and have a characteristic dorsal fin known as a sail, which often stretches the entire length of the back. The sail is normally kept folded down when swimming and only raised when the sailfish attack their prey. The raised sail has been shown to reduce sideways oscillations of the head, which is likely to make the bill less detectable by prey fish.
Specie: red lionfish (Pterois volitans)
Brief Description: Found singly or in family groups, over muddy and volcanic bottoms, sometimes hiding in crevices during the day, over coastal reefs. Spines look like feathers and are highly venomous.Lionfish can be found during the day, hovering above the ground, in caves or crevices, often upside down. At night they are out in the open hunting. When disturbed they raise their feathery fins as a warning and will usually move off out of harms way, however, if cornered they are able to charge at considerable speed.
Specie: oceanic manta ray (Mobula birostris)
Brief Description: When traveling in deep water, the giant oceanic manta ray swims steadily in a straight line, while further inshore it usually basks or swims idly around. Mantas may travel alone or in groups of up to 50 and sometimes associate with other fish species, as well as sea birds and marine mammals. (funny M. Birostris are rivals of BullSharks due their bites in their fins haha but at the same time been on the same "family" they kinda been over protective)
Specie: earless seals / harbour seal
Brief Description: Individual harbor seals possess a unique pattern of spots, either dark on a light background or light on a dark.Harbor seals are solitary, but are gregarious when hauled out and during the breeding season, though they do not form groups as large as some other seals. When not actively feeding, they haul to rest. They tend to be coastal. sea pupper.
I headcanon that Polnareff can't get a tan. He's either aristocratic pale or angry fresh tomato red, there is no middle ground.
