Pulau Bunaken Things to Do: 22 reviews and 36 photos

Several of the damselfishspecies are farmers. They eat algae, but instead of swiming around looking for it, they confiscate an area where it grows. From then it agressively defends it against others. It clean the crop from debris every day, and if it feel that an increase in production is required, it simply clean away the surrounding corals. You find them on the reef flats.
