WhyReef - Fun Facts
The pacific gregory damselfish is a sort of undersea farmer, tending to its patch of algae. It prefers thin algae that look like threads or really thin spaghetti. When it doesn’t like other types of algae that grow in its patch, such as calcareous algae (algae that has hard stems made of calcium), it weeds them out, as any good farmer would.
