#1: Unidentified Parasite Fish

Weird Fishes - Unidentified Parasite Fish
Apparently this fish is a parasite fish that attaches itself to the sides off big fishes like Sharks and Whales, as well as big ships. And freeloads of his hosts by hitching a ride on them. I suppose the huge weird structure on top is the suction design that allows it to attach itself to its host easily.

Blob Fish

The Blob Fish swallows edible matter that floats in front of it such as deep-ocean crustaceans.
The flesh of the blobfish is made of a gelatinous structure with a density less than water, which allows it to float above the sea floor without using any energy on swimming.
Due to its low density flesh, the blobfish’s shape is very different when it is out of water.

#9: The tongue replacer

The Tongue Replacer is a parasite that  attaches itself to a fish’s tongue.
It begins by attaching itself to the fish’s tongue and sucking the fish’s  blood through the claws on its front legs.

When it grows bigger, less blood reaches the fish’s tongue.
Slowly, the parasite replaces the tongue and the fish uses it like a normal tongue.
Yucks!!!
