Canvas printing, poster prints of tropical fish pictures. Epaulette Surgeonfish ascending the coral drop-off on the edge of a tropical blue lagoon. The name surgeonfish is derived from the extremely sharp scalpel-like spines that all surgeonfish have on either side of their tails. Despite their lethal sounding name however, surgeonfish are grazers, feeding mostly on algae growing on coral reefs.
