An article on BBC News has reported that scientists have found one of the smallest fish on record in the peat swamps on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Measuring a mere 7.9mm, this fascinating of fish has abandoned some of the general adult fish attributes such as the bony protection surrounding the brain and the females have room to carry just a few eggs.
Whilst scientists may have found this particular species, owing to habitat destruction it is most likely that the same cannot be said about their miniature relatives.
