OK, guys... here's a couple of things I've been wanting to do all wrapped up
in one...

I have published my first web page... hey it's no Farmer Todd, but I wanted to
use it to do the second thing...

What is the proper name for the fish in the first three pictures? I know
what I think, but I'm not the pro... and the pros (in the form of the books
that I have read, seem to disagree with my evaluation. So how about some of
you take a look at tell us all what you think... and why.

By the way, all of the pics were taken with my Fuji FinePix A303... left on
automatic... pics were cut and cropped to make 'em smaller for the web page...
And all the finned stars are housed in my 75 gallon tank... except for the few
guppies that crowed the lens (yea, I know, they are all out now, but came with
the tank... long story).
