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!

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.

sea robin/red gurnard(Chelidonichthys spinosus)



Flying gurnard (Dactyloptena orientalis)


I think I saw this one on one of those old Godzilla movies.

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.

Yes, one of the lfs here has a "pond" in the store with a 3-4ft shark, cow fish, and some other awesome things. They are very cool!
