strange fish, believe freshwater
I recently visited a new aquarium and they didn't have signs up yet listing names/species of fish, and they were pretty dead, so no one around to answer my question.
Maybe someone here could provide information? First, I'm not sure if the fish was freshwater or saltwater
I was very distracted by how the fish looked. The fish was often in a vertical position along a rocky structure. So imagine head up. It has huge fins that remind me of moth wings -- like orange in color, just huge (about as long and wide as the fish). The strangest thing of all was the fish appeared to have 'legs', like crab legs
coming out of its gills. There several of these fish, and they were 'walking' with these legs along the rocks.
What are they? Sorry I can't remember more details, they reminded me of catfish somewhat.
