Powder Blue Surgeonfish nibbling on algae growing on the dead areas of reef whilst an array of colourful new young coral spring out from the reef, creating a rainbow of colours. 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.
