I was all set to be creeped out by the new fish species. But they were very cool with their mohawk tops. My favorite was Seeing Red, it looked like an Iguana

Yes, they are terribly cute.

Thanks

Interesting Wikipedia article. I've long been a proponent of Wikipedia. For the level of research my students are doing, at middle school, it's the best, hands down. I've even added/edited posts there myself. I'd love to teach my students how to do this, too, but the system is still much too complicated for my grade level. I do think it's a great idea for college level students, maybe even AP classes in high school.

Yes, C.B. I love it as well. Unfortunately it's blocked in our district so we have to settle for online World Book and Britannica which are okay, but they don't have articles on, for example, deep fried Mars bars.
