I know that's a fish but I can't figure out where the mouth is. I think it is at the lower left but I'm not sure.

Outstanding shot.

Cal, thanx!! you are correct, the mouth is at the bottom left. i think it's a type of seahorse. i was looking for the penguin exhibit and asked an aquarium person and he was all excited and kept telling me i had to see the leafy sea dragon. glad i did.
