African Butterfly Fish possible "living fossil"
A couple of members recently set up aquaria for Pantodon buchholzi, the African Butterfly fish. The linked article may be of interest to them and others; scientists have discovered two separate and genetically distinct populations that have existed unchanged for more than 57 million years and may therefore be deemed "living fossils." What an amazing hobby.
