Quiz time! These fish are called “archer” fish because:

i) When they get excited, they quiver.
*) During breeding season, they make a noise that sounds like “Phrasing!”
c) The odds are ever in their favor.
4) They shoot insects with jets of water.
д) Their long lives pass like swift draughts of the sweet mead.
ζ) They are unhealthily obsessed with the death of their city.
