Okay kittenfish, that photo is darn adorable!

Tell someone not to do something, and they will do it. Namely me. I DID NOT need to know there is such a thing as a tounge eating louse. Arrrgghhh Google! I was lured by science.

Thanks for that. This will be the object of my dreams (read: nightmares) tonight.

At least I'm not the only one.

Ahaha, yeah no, the Betta's cant get that parasite, it's gigantic. But yes, all fish have tongues and teeth but the teeth vary according to species
