The Virgin River spinedace is a tiny fish causing a big stir.

The Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over a tiny fish called the Virgin River Spinedace.

The group alleges Fish and Wildlife has not done enough to protect the fish, which calls parts of Washington County, Utah home.
