I have seen them in person before but only dead preserved specimens. The ones I looked at were interesting, one of them had a barbel on one side of the face (like a carp) and none on the other (like a goldfish).

The pictures come from here

Take a look at the site, there are lots of great pictures of native fish and a few invasive as well.

Whoa, sweet! Makes sense that they would cross, since goldfish are descended from a carp. Man, seeing all those fish makes me want to go fishing! There were some awesome fish on that sight!

I checked out that link and wow there are some strange fish in this world. I did a report on lamprey a couple years ago and I found them fascinating. I've never heard of a molted sculpin but it is a very interesting-looking fish.

Glad to see you guys enjoying the pictures, we have some truely awsome native fish.

Kissy, I actually had a mottled sculpin but she dies because of the overly warm temps. They prefer really cool water. Now whenever I see them in the wild I just let them go. Someday I'll setup a tank in my basement or something and try again.
