This week in Fish: Pacific Leaping Blenny

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 24 Jun 2011

This week we feature the incredible Pacific Leaping Blenny and show movie footage of a very lively Spikefin Goby in an aquarium.  We farewell Justine our 'metal tag worker' and ask the question "Why don't anemonefishes get stung?".
