"The School Portrait. Lined catfish are incredibly social creatures that move across the sea bottom in tight schools that form crazy shapes and patterns. I found this gang seeking momentary cover in a sunken boat near Dumaguete, Philippines. Sometimes they form perfect round spheres, pyramids or vertical stacks that reach several feet high. These cool catfish are also called poisonous catfish because, like many in the catfish group, they have a poisonous spine. The behavior and formations of this species never ceases to amaze me."
