Finally a clown closeup! *PIC*

A few things I noticed with this photo:
You can see the lateral line. Most of the time I never see that in the fish.
Also, I find those little nostrel flap thingies funny. What do you think they close when they jump put of water so they don't get air up their nose?:) Seriouslly, does anyone know what they are, are they for "smell"?
If you look closely you can see that there is a slit/pocket just under the eye for the spine.
And lastly, what surprised my the most was the whiskers that I always though were smooth, in this photo are far from it. The Yoyo pics I've posted showed smooth whiskers, now I have to get closer shots:)
