The Museum

The Pale Chub can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"These fish are related to carp, with distinguishing features such as long ventral fins and protruding mouths. They have good jumping abilities, which allow them to jump up and grab bugs hanging around the water. They are known as very active fish with rather scrappy attitudes, making them tenacious survivors. During mating season, the male's stomach turns pink and its back turns blue. Females love this."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a pale chub! It could use some sun!"
