If you can't brush after every meal, better queue up regularly at the local cleaning clinic. Tiny neon gobies make a good living as dental and dermatological technicians for residents of the reef, venturing fearlessly into fang-filled caverns to dine on ectoparasites that thrive on their clients' teeth, gills and scales. Look! In the barracuda's mouth! Is that goby psychotic? No, just symbiotic. While the clients don't tip, they never gobble the gobies. They all mind their p's 'n' q's.
