Talking Wild NH Fishys and other weirdness...

Yesterday the family went to Canobie Lake Park - an amusement park built in the early 20th century - in Salem, NH. Towards evening, we decided to take a pontoon boat ride around the lake (which is the town water supply).

While we were waiting for the boat to arrive, we looked in the water beside the dock and saw about 20 fish. They ranged in size from 4" to about 9". I think there were at least 2 different species. One seemed to have brownish, vertical stripes and teal colored fins; The other was larger and dull, and seemed to have only one horizontal stripe.

I don't know what species of fish they were (sunfish and "pumpkin seeds" are local fresh water fish, and the state stocks some of the lakes and rivers with game fish). They were all incredibly healthy, perfect specimens, despite eating junk food morsels (fried dough, etc).

On the boat ride my 22 year old daughter (who thinks fish are the pets from hell) mocked me about ick (those fish have ick; the life jackets have ick, you're ick-y; that side of the lake has ick; look, the building has ick, and so on). It was pretty funny... well, I guess you had to be there, lol...

20H: 2 Cory Catfish, One very mellow Cambodian female Betta, Two Golden Veil Angelfish (male and female)
