Per Wee Beastie

Mhairi sent in this photo of a stonefish she saw at an aquarium near Edinburgh. The stonefish is one of many well-camouflaged ambush-hunting fish.

This particular fish was being kept in a 'poisonous fish' tank along with a puffer and a zebra fish. But why the sad face? Quite possible because he was being picked on by the puffer. As Mhairi put it (listen for the Scottish accent), "per wee beastie".

Thanks for the photo, Mhairi.

Awww, now that is sad. Poor little frowny faced rock fish.

Probably ticked off because the fishkeepers fed the puffer but didn't think that pile of algae at the bottom of the tank needed anything...
