The kelpoggle replaced its ancestor cleaner kelpeg. It has grown so big that its no longer microscopic. It has developed a protective exoskeleton. It also developed another pair of pseudo-limbs to help it grip onto gilltails. It reproduces asexually and releases frog-like eggs onto the skin of the gilltails. It only eats the dead skin cells of gilltails. It can also release a toxic bite if other species try to eat them.
