Fine Lined Surgeonfish

Acanthurus grammoptilus


These fish are like Bandits that roamed over parts of Europe in the Dark Ages. They sweep across the reef in gangs (often made up of different species) and overcome the farmers (territorial fish), stealing their crops (algae) and eating their children (eggs). Guardian: Travis Weddle
