OK Moon, you got me--lumpfish are coldwater Pacific fishes found along rocky
coasts, and down into deep trenches. Some of them are called snailfish.
They're the family Cyclopteridae, and as a group are poorly known in terms
of their ecology and reproductive behaviors. Eleven species occur in North
American waters, such as the Gelatinous Snailfish (I kid you not), _Liparis
fabricii_. Probably not easy aquarium fish either...
