Seriously – This fish is different as a juvenile, adult male, and adult female. Pretty cool stuff.

    1. It’s so cool that we keep discovering new things. It’s almost a real “Middle Earth” of strangeness.

    3. Wow. I find this adorable, in a way. I don’t know why.

      @nyokki:

      Agreed! Just as RSI said, best description. I’ve always thought in terms like that of the world. Not many people realise how strange and unknown this place really is. What we know so far, is but a small fragment.

    7. yes, in most species there is a difference between the males and the females.

      • Yeah, but not that much of a difference. The changes here were enough that it could be believed they were completely different species, where in most fish the changes are the white spots on their gills and a slightly moved anal fin.
