Once or twice during the Seahorses' concert at the Palace on Wednesday, a song would seem reminiscent of Oasis' melodic, acoustic-electric mix. More accurately, though, a tune such as "Blinded by the Sun" faintly echoed Seahorses guitarist John Squire's former band the Stone Roses, the erstwhile kings of Brit-pop who never quite managed to set the world on fire.

Don't be deceived by the seahorse's gentle demeanor or slow, regal movements. These bizarrely shaped fish are actually stealthy predators, ideally adapted for slowly sneaking up on one of the ocean's greatest escape artists, and then devouring it in a flash. Seahorses are opportunistic eaters, but one of their preferred foods is the elusive copepod--a small crustacean that varies in size from 1/10 of a millimeter to a few millimeters across. Copepods cannot see predators coming at them, but they sense them by detecting subtle changes in water flow when one approaches.

First of all, what's up with that name: Hello Seahorse! (Yes, exclamation mark included.) Don't expect a simple answer regarding its meaning from the Mexico City indie rock band, whose songs often are as unpredictable and enigmatic as its appellation. "We didn't even know what it means," said Denise Gutierrez, a.k.a. Lo Blondo, the band's lead vocalist and lyricist, speaking by phone earlier this week. "It's weird, because we never know what to say when people ask us that question.

Private detective Spenser fast- talks his way in and out of trouble in Robert B. Parker's "Taming a Sea-Horse." From New York's 42nd Street to the Crown Prince Clubs--a chain of prostitution resorts for the wealthy--tough guy Spenser searches for April Kyle, a hooker who has mysteriously disappeared. This is Parker's 13th Spenser novel, and in many respects, it is a better book than his previous best seller, "A Catskill Eagle."

Marine biologist Carol Cozzi-Schmarr's business is saving some of the planet's most exotic small sea creatures. In 1998, she and her husband, Craig Schmarr, left shrimp hatchery jobs in Florida and used a small-business loan to establish the only seahorse farm in the country. Now they have 40 huge, royal blue tanks teeming with the colorful marine animals, which have a far better chance of survival in captivity than in the open ocean. They sell for as much as $300 apiece.

They had survived a 19-hour flight from Vietnam in a bag of oxygenated water, stashed in a cooler, before they landed at Los Angeles International Airport. The seahorses -- five males and three females -- were each about 5 inches long. And hungry. Authorities confiscated the animals -- considered a threatened species that can be traded only under special regulations -- and turned them over to SEA Lab in Redondo Beach.

Thousands of people have tried, in their own quixotic ways, to help BP protect wildlife and clean up crude in the Gulf of Mexico after the worst oil disaster in the country's history. There were those who shaved their dogs and sent the hair south for the company to use to soak up the oil. And there were inventors who flew to Louisiana hoping that their cleanup gadgets would catch BP's eye. A Taiwanese billionaire retrofitted a giant tanker to skim oil from the ocean. And then there's Jack Rudloe, who's determined to protect vulnerable and important sea life — and his business — all on his own. Rudloe, 67, wants to save the gulf's mollusks, shrimp, crabs, seahorses and other invertebrates from what he sees as potential extinction.
