    hmm. wonder where all the saltwater experts went.

    The gills are the red respiratory organs. I'm guessing you're talking about the gill covers protecting the gills, which are properly known as opercula (singular operculum).

    Sorry to hear. Stuff like this tends to happen in the first few tries.
