aquatic life

In between the Halloween festivities yesterday, we actually did look at some of the animals at the aquarium. Unlike Tony, who never thinks to bring the camera on weekend outings with the boys, Tracy added to her resume as the official family photographer. Please enjoy the following portfolio.

Presumably some sort of catfish, the little stripey guy is one of our favorites from the Amazon display.

oh how i love seahorses! such great pictures - thank you for sharing. we had a salt water fish tank when i was growing up and tried a few times, unsuccessfully, to keep seahorses. they are such amazing creatures.
