And I thought I had caught small fish!

An AP report out of Bangkok, Thailand on the ABC News site states that scientists have discovered a fish that grows to less than 1/3 of an inch in length in the acid bogs of Indonesia.

It beat the old record by just thaaaaaat much.
The previous record for world's smallest fish, according to the Natural History Museum, was held by a species of Indo-Pacific goby one-tenth of a millimeter longer.
Wow!. Just one-tenth of a millimeter shorter than the old record! I'm sure it doesn't make musch of a difference when one considers variations within individuals of a species. But you get your kicks where ever you may.
