Donating to the museum

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium lists information about this fish. When interacted with, it reads:

"Ribbon eels have long, ribbonlike bodies and look as if they have flowers sprouting from their noses. They get their name from their bright, vivid color, in addition to the length of their bodies. Ribbon eels hatch sexless before first becoming males, then females as they age. Their tendency to stick their heads out from holes in the sand and open their mouths is not a sign of anger. In actuality, they're merely taking a breath. Oddly, they're surprisingly peaceful creatures, despite the look."
