'shark', rather than just shark, is it a barb of some sort?

Lupin 05-12-2007 11:18 AM

They're not barbs but rather minnows although they are often called 'sharks' owing to their body shape and finnage.;)

Was the only minnow I could think of that looked like a shark.

Sorry to spoil your game... :lol:
