Boy, that is something! I wonder how closely related they are to Sheepshead Minnows.

Wow. That video is awesome. Hard to believe how affected this tiny(surface area) body of water is from an earthquake many hundreds of miles away. I suppose it is actually a fairly large BOW with very little area to release the waves caused by such a disturbance. Thanks Bruce, pretty eye opening. Butterfly effect in your face!

The Devil's Hole pupfish are pretty closely related to Sheepsheads.
