Sandkings, by George R.R. Martin

I randomly found a link to an amazing short story by George R.R. Martin.  It is a sci-fi story about someone who buys a “fishtank” of tiny semi-sentient hivemind creatures who create small castle-based societies and busy themselves fighting each other.  I think it should be pretty clear why I would love it – go read it here.
