White-spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari)
This species is said to move around in large schools but I saw only one. An interesting fact about it is that it can reach about 800 cm in length, including tail. So I suppose a large portion of that is the length of its tail. I always wonder why they need such a long tail.
Female spotted boxfish (Ostracion meleagris)
Convict surgeonfish (Acanthurus triostegus)
Algal grazers on the reef. They get their name from the sharp spines on both sides of the tail base. Many websites say that the spines can be as sharp as scalpel blades!
Surf parrotfish (Scarus rivulatus)
Colorful residents on the reef. Parrotfishes play a role in bottom sediment formation in a reef system by ingesting coral rock, grinding them to powder and passing it out with their feces. Anyway, one interesting fact that I just learned is that they sleep in a cocoon-like mucus envelope that they make. And the envelope is supposed to mask their scent, protecting them from predators like the moral eel.
