I started trying to rescue fish since the BP oil started coming ashore in the Gulf and most of these fish have been in one of my tanks since Jan/Feb before the spill then I rescued allot of fish and even purchased the 100gal tank in the video to save more fish. The oil well has been capped and a few weeks ago I went to the beach with my daughters boyfriend and we caught a few new fish. These guys are in the video and have been in the tanks for over a month now. So if anyone knows what these fish might be your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

How the **** do you embed youtube without links? I have looked at my old links with youtube some are embedded and some are links but they have been posted the same way on all video's.

Google Magic, my friend, Google Magic...

Pictorial Guide to Fish in the Gulf of Mexico

Those stripey-deals are Atlantic Spadefish. I want to say the Shark looks like a Silver Tipped, but it's not on that list?

I don't know, there's so many of them, and I'm far from an expert! I'm trying to help though, I'll update you if I can help further...

Owe believe me I use google for something other than porn; lol I actually have many fla websites saved via bookmarks because they have great pictures like the site you linked me too (thank you) but many of these fish look like the adults but some fry don't. So those little striped fish I'm betting are like that also I just noticed the smaller one is a male and he has the yellow markings under his chin and actually they might be full grown. The smaller male is in the mood for love and the larger looks to be female; as long as they can be sexed by normal ways visually.

The stupid fish of the year award goes to the small puffer, so far he has been suk'd up three times by the large 120 filter and once by the 60 filter and once even by the mini filter. Last night I had to shut off the filter remove the bottom that had suk'd part of the fish into it and then he inflated thus trapping himself. It took almost 2 hours to get him to de-inflate himself si I could assist him getting free. Everytime we got close he would puff up again. With that I am happy to report the dumbest fish in south Mississippi is alive and well back in my kiddy tank so he can't hurt himself again...... lol Dumb fish

Wow, you sure have a smart fish on your hands. ;) Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance! If you're in dire need of answers, might I suggest a Fish Forum? I'm sure they'd be of help.

I just wanted to say, I think it's funny (In a cute way, don't be offended!), as well as wonderful, that you went out and bought a whole new fish tank to save more fish.

So Jocko - I think you should take this homeless koi off my hands. We can pretend he is a salt water fish.

We are allowed to discuss other things. Oddly, those of us who love GSDs often have similar interests - like gardening, TV shows, other pets, and even fish.

BTW Jocko - my son and his friends LOVED your video and your story about your puffer fish. Loved your accent too. Oh - right you probably don't think you have an accent. We don't think we have one either. HA!
