I agree I think, on the Orangespotted. Well I hope you're wrong on the
Greenie because he's in my 55 with all the Fundulas and Elassoma! I
think the image is a little misleading. He's actually a little more
rounded and has those funky orange spots along the lateral line. Also,
its hard to tell but the eye has some re/orange pigmentation but its
orientation is off about 900 compared to anything I've seen. I'll try
to get a better photo.
