File:Arnoglossus laterna larva.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Arnoglossus laterna larva.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on August 9, 2012. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2012-08-09. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 18:21, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Scaldfish larva

The larva of a scaldfish (Arnoglossus laterna), one of the many species that are considered to be ichthyoplankton, a blanket term for fish eggs and larvae that cannot swim effectively under their own power, but must drift with the ocean currents. Fish larvae are part of the zooplankton that eat smaller plankton, while fish eggs carry their own food supply. Both eggs and larvae are themselves eaten by larger animals.
