Couldn't resist playing with Nic's birthday present while she wasn't looking. ;-) The lips freak me out, I didn't know they were ribbed like that. I love their nostrils too...remind me of Shrek's ears! Get a load of the size of the head canals (part of the lateral line system) just above the lip! Or is that even what they are? There's a row of finer ones just above them, the same size as the other head row of canals. Fish usually have two head rows below the eye, but this close together?
