With the onset of the hitchhiker scuttlers the islandball gillfins found themselves eating colonialballs with the scuttlers inside, or even mistaking the scuttlers for the flora. However, instead of hampering the species, the islandball gillfin incorporated them into their diet, thus the scuttleball gillfin replaced its ancestor in all the areas inhabited by its new prey.

Besides growing a little in size, changing its color to better blend in with the islandballs, and its beak changing to better scoop up and crush both its prey, it is virtually the same as its ancestor. Individuals live to 5 years, reaching maturity in time with the islandballs they live on (about 2 weeks)
