Mystery sculpin

Post by StellarChum » Sun Dec 14, 2008 5:31 pm

Hi there!

I'm having trouble identifying a couple of sculpin, can anyone please help me? The first sculpin was found during a night dive on Lopez, the second during the day at Three Tree. :fish:

Looks like a buffalo sculpin and a Red Irish Lord to me.
