97. Revisiting the Topic: Fish You Won't See at Water Colors Aquarium Gallery

The Water Colors team revisits the topic of our first podcast episode: What fish species will you never see at Water Colors and why? The three of us have had two years to grow as hobbyists (and professionals) and many of our respective perspectives have shifted in that time.
