A swarm of Convict Surgeon fish darting across the coral reef, nearly obscuring the corals. Convict Surgeonfish often form into schools, feeding on algae in large aggregations, often where freshwater runs off into the sea. The whitish-yellow colour, combined with the zebra like black stripes have earned it the name of Convict Surgeonfish or Convict Tang. 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.
