Bill, that is one nifty banded sculpin. Seems that if he was put in a
stream with preadtors, he'd be the first one to get nailed. At least if I
was a predator, I would have seen him first. In fact, I didn't even see
the other sculpin in the picture until I read the caption: "note more
normal lower right."

Given that aquariums don't usually support predator-prey relationships,
though, I'd say you've got some breeding stock on your hands, Bill.

P.S. I didn't believe that there was actually a place in Arkansas called
Yellville, so I checked the atlas, and I was proved wrong. Next question -
how the heck did it get a name like Yellville? And how's the noise
pollution down there, anyway?
