Watery Wednesday

While trying to discover what this fish was, I came across a great blog hosted by The Brine Queen, a marine biology student. It has all things to do with the sea and if you're interested in that kind of thing, I'm sure you would find the visit very interesting. You can find her blog if you click here.

I think he is some kind of puffer fish and I found him at the Seattle Aquarium a few weeks ago.

Compared with the other, brightly coloured, fish he looks pretty dull. But I like him! He looks like a great candidate for "Creature Comforts" animation. I haven't a clue what he might be called though, Denise. A x

Thank you for sharing! No one loves aquarium life more than me!

What an interesting fish! I wonder if his mouth is always open because he feeds on plankton and is constantly filtering them. I shall have a look at Brine Queen's blog - thank you for the pointer ;-)

We used to have a salt water fish tank and we had a smaller version of this fish. It is one of the puffers, but I'll be danged if I can remember the name. Anyway it was fun to be reminded. Puts a smile on my face for the evening.

Not so good looking fish but it has a purpose. I also guess it's a puffer fish. Happy Wednesday!
