that's a great find ... although not real practical to keep at home. Any filter you put in your tank would likely suck that little bugger up. Plus you'd need a microscope just to look at your fish.

For a second I thought that was a joke but checked out the photo properties and googled "hairy lobster" and wow. I must say that is a terrifying looking animal, and I am rarely creeped out by aquatic creatures unless they are of the slug/worm sort.

I'm reading the CNN article on it right now, fascinating. To think of all that lurks 900 miles below sea level....

I just looked at the smallest fish article. Anyone else think the pic resembles a glass catfish? I also read the hairy lobster article a while back. I love the fact that they don't have eyes...

Wow they are so cool! They would have to play a big role in nature... it's the smallest things that make everything work!

I saw that thing on the news awhile back. I thought it was pretty neat that we are still finding new creatures! Can you even imagine what else must be down there?
