Quiz of the Month April!

The monthly Quiz!

Postby saracen » 2006-03-31 22:02

This months competition is simple, and hopefully fun!

I will provide you with 8 photographs of beautiful fish, and all you have to do is identify them! Hopefully I have made them challenging, but not too difficult, and I hope you will all have fun and join in!

All entries to me please, by Personal Message or E-mail, by the 29th of April, and the winner will be announced on the 30th.

Good luck everyone!

For the photographs, I have to thank Mark Rosenstein of the <a href='http://fins.actwin.com/index.php' target='_blank'>Fish Information Service</a>, who has kindly given me permission to reproduce his photographs here.

The contest is now closed!

A big <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>BIG</span> thank you to everyone who joined in, we really do appreciate it, and we hope you all had fun entering!

Feedback is always welcome, so I would love you to drop me a line, and tell me what kind of Quiz you would like to see. Do you want them all fishy? Or would you like some other types....like, name the famous faces? I do intend to do a live quiz at some point, so do come and join in for that one!

Anyway....... the answers are....

1) Flame Hawk - Neocirrhitus Armatus

2) Moorish Idol - Zanclus comutus

3) Royal Gramma - Gramma loreto

4) Clown Trigger - Balistoides conspicillum

5) Polka Dot Cat/Angel cat(or any one of a million other common names!) - Synodontis angelicus

6) Wolf Cichlid - Parachromis Dovii

7) Firemouth - Thorichthys meeki

8) Endlers livebearer - Poecillia sp. Endlers (sorry, cant remember what the new clasification s... :P )

I did take the common names, so no one was marked down for not sending scientific ones!

I had LOADS of entries, and I was really pleased to see you all did so well! Thank you once again for entering, and taking the time to do such a wonderful job.

I had 4 entries that had the magical 8/8, and I really did put them into a hat.... It was drawn by my glamourous assistant, complete with sequins, the lovely husband, Mike!

And the winner is........Drumroll please.........
