First fish to join the tank. A Tidepool sculpin (Oligocottus maculosus)

Dang those things are cute! We have a "mottled sculpin" that lives in the upper Wind River valley near here. If I ever do a native tank, I want to add a few. Must be an exceptionally adaptable family!

I am becoming quite enamored with sculpins. Something about that big head/little body packed with personality I find hard to resist. :)

Cool!
So, you are just catching these things in the wild and adding to the tank?
How are you IDing them?
