Very cool, brenna. As an additional note, there are several species of the rather largish family of blennies (family Blennidae) that seem to thrive for short periods of time outside of water. These tide pool fish are pretty familiar to folks who like to peer into rocky pools between the low and highwater marks. Here's a pic of one:
Sometimes called rock blenny or common blenny, they survive for up to several minutes outside of the water by gulping a bubble of air and keeping it in their mouths. Oxygen diffuses slowly through the membranes in their mouth and throat. This adaptation allows them to live in oxygen starved tide pools, or even leave one pool if it dries up and move to another nearby by flopping on to the rocks. It is also an escape mechanism - I've teased them into doing it simply by dipping my hand into a pool and watching them scatter.
I wonder how creationists would explain all these critters? After all, fish kind swim in water - it's the defining characteristic of the baramin, n'est-ce pas? Since they deny the possibility that fish evolved into land-dwelling vertebrates, to see an organism like your tree-dwelling fish must give them fits. I wonder if we're looking at another lineage in the process of changing their habitats to a new one...It appears that fish are still leaving the water.
I'm not sure how it is new info for us to find out more fish that can breathe air, considering that one of the most common pet fish (beta) that are found in pet stores everywhere breathe air to live.Disclaimer:

He, him, and his are not intended as exclusively masculine pronouns. They may refer to either sex or to both sexes!
