Answer A. Probably the climbing perch, Anabas testudinus, a widely
distributed anabandid which comes in a neat yellow and a blah dark gray,
perhaps among other colors. It's in most of the tropical fish books,
especially those on labyrinth fishes.

Vaguely remember National Georgraphic featuring an article on climbing
fishes or some such title. It's time they ran an article on darters or dwarf
sunfishes or sunfishes or killifishes or even "Never Give A Sucker An Even
Break." :)

Answer B. "Boy did the Mekong flood this year!"

All the best,
