A little about Victorian Scalyfin fish

Scalyfins are a territorial damselfish only found in southern Australia. Adult male and female scalyfins look the same and both grow up to 25cm in length. They aggressively defend their well-maintained crop of algae from fellow grazers and have even be found to attack those that come too close, such as leatherjacket fish and even scuba divers.
