Abstract
    Of 31 A.lineatus juveniles reared in a single experiment, 26 were abnormal. Abnormalities included incomplete eye migration, hooked dorsal fins, the presence of a left pectoral fin, ambicoloration, and partial albinism. The abnormal specimens have been described and photographed. A single reversed specimen, preserved as a nearly metamorphosed individual, also is described. Most of the abnormal conditions were interrelated. Possible effects of the rearing tank environment on abnormal development are discussed.
