If, like us, you missed Glastonbury this year and you are trying to think of another way to celebrate the arrival of summer in the Northern Hemisphere why not make like these Fiveband Surgeonfish (Acanthurus triostegus) and head to a tropical paradise instead?
If you have made it to a festival in the UK you may have seen friendly groups all wearing the same outfit, this is so they can easily find each other in a crowd. On a crowded reef these Surgeonfish use their matching patterns and great dance moves to confuse larger fish and stay safe. Festivals are not all about getting squashed in a crowd, there are often beautiful areas for you to relax and meet people with similar music tastes. Fiveband Surgeonfish are the mellowest of the Acanthurus species and can be seen in aggregations of hundreds or even thousands of like-minded fish cruising along the reef. Surgeonfish are algae feeders, moving along the reef grazing whenever they get hungry, they can be very particular about the food they eat. If you are like the surgeonfish and want to still eat healthy while at your festival fear not! Festivals these days cater for all tastes, there is always a good veggie option; wraps, falafel, corn on the cob, and my favourite the roast dinner! We do not recommend grazing on algae at your festival.
Shake off those rainy summer blues and join us underwater on the reef! We have already got the Five-bands here to entertain you.
