ROFL

Tried to upload the pics as attachments, but didn't work in the way I expected (was expecting to have an option to put them inline to the topic but couldn't see a way of doing that). So had to quickly go to another computer and use that to upload to photobucket...

And looking at the picture you had Goldy I'd say the answer is yes.

I say so to, it definatly looks like one. Good photos to mate. I cant even get pics of things twice the size without them being blurred.

Re: Is this a #7
Only the one found, had a close look around and nothing else. Spotted one on another fish in the store although in another tank, looks as though they may have a supply issue.

Happy with the pics as it was the first time I'd used that particular lense which was the stock one that came with the camera... (Sony Alpha 200) I normally have a 70-200mm zoom on the body

Still learning it as it was a present to myself earlier this year

Re: Is this a #8
fish lice are so gross!!

how long have you had the fish.. just incase its long enough for that little guy to have produced some replacements?
also, if you have spotted another in the store i would raise the issue with them.. they either have noticed and have done somthing about it and those ones have just slipped through in which case they need to check the system as they could be everywhere if they have gone unoticed, or they havent noticed at all and arent aware of the problem.. in which case they need to quarantine the whole sytem...! i wouldnt buy any more fish from there for now..

Spotted it the day after the kids got it, so should be pretty safe,
