Prickly Sculpin - Micro or Standard?
I was wondering if the Prickly Sculpin should be upgraded to standard sized species? I've seen photos of huge individuals posted online and fishbase and wiki both say they can reach up to 30cm!

Hmm

I haven't seen a photo of one that looks even close to a pound.  If somebody could produce such evidence, I would personally consider it.

Hmm, I will ask around on

Hmm, I will ask around on Facebook, but here's a larger specimen I found posted on iNat, no idea how to tell it's weight though. I haven't weighed a fish in a long time haha.
