Title: Algal Growth on Beaks of Live Parrotfishes

Abstract: ABSTRACT: The algal flora on the beaks of certain parrotfishes is described. No
host-specific relationship exists between the algae and fishes. A direct correlation
between the length of the algae and the size of the fish is present. The exposed
dentition of the parrotfish merely provides another type of substratum on which
algae grow.
