More aquarium trivia

Since I put up Deepo with the other trivia, I thought I'd do a bit more trivia about Deepo. Deepo is the official mascot for the Georgia Aquarium. He is a garibaldi fish. Garibaldi are a bright orange fish that live off the coast of California down to Mexico. They like the kelp forests and are usually found around reefs. The garibaldi male makes the nest for the females, the female then gets to choose which nest and male she likes best by visiting each nest. She'll then deposit her eggs and the male will guard the nest. They will also make a noise that is audible to divers to warn off intruders.
