Lifestyle
I am very protective of my home and my food! You will find me around dead coral or rocks that are covered in algae. I will chase off fish that try to steal my food. I may not be the most colorful fish, but being dull is a good thing for me! I easily blend in to my habitat. That makes it difficult for predators to see me.
Fun Facts
I am a farmer! I take care of my patch of turf algae, weeding it and making sure it grows well. I like algae that looks like really skinny spaghetti. Sometimes hard-stemmed, thick algae, called calcareous (kal-CARE-eeyus) algae, grows in my patch. I don't like this kind of algae, so I weed it out!
Menu
I love algae! Thin (filamentous) algae is my favorite and is an important type of turf algae. So you will often find me munching on my favorite kinds of turf algae. I will also eat tiny animals called zooplankton that live in my algae garden. Because I eat both plants and animals, I am an omnivore.
Threats
Reefs are in danger, and that means so is my home!
