Most clingfish (skillet fish) are marine but evidently in Mexico there are
two freshwater representatives. They are shaped a little like a flattened
tadpole with a sucker disc on the ventral surface. I've never seen the
freshwater species but the marine species are very interesting. I would love
to have several of the freshwater clingfish to try and breed them.
