Don't know -- the first pic, the 'wings' look about right, not the pattern though. I can't recall what the tail looked like. And these guys were mostly toward the bottom of the tank -- crawling around on those creepy legs!

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

Yeah, and I feel like once I post a pic a bunch of folks will say, omg you never saw those before? Those are like everywhere! LOL :D

Well, in our modern world, there are still lots of animals remaining undiscovered.
Deep sea trenches often have fish that have remained undiscovered.

Er...I'm talking away from the freshwater topics.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Correct!!! It is a Sea Robin!!! Absolutely bizarre. Much more like a sculpin. Photos didn't turn out (BLURRY), but here are some pics I snagged and a link to the site I got em at, with an audio of the sound they make. COOL. They are saltwater.

Ya know what's really, really cool in a saltwater tanki? the Long-horned cow fish. It looks like an alien!

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
