ID this Fish or Invert

Post by Hero on April 20th 2010, 6:49 pm

Rules are pretty simple, post a picture of a temperate marine fish or invert. Then everyone guesses until one person get's it. Whoever gets it posts the next picture. Where going to use the honor system here, so don't cheat! I'll start Cool.

It's at least a kind of rockfish? My next guess is some form of sculpin or blenny.

That wouldn't have helped me much. I didn't know that though, that's cool. Oh i did a google search of sculpin, then i found a picture of a sculpin that looked similar to your image, and of course there had to be this huge gallery of images of fish in the nothern pacific coast area Cool. I posted it in the resources thread if you want to check it out.

My turn.
