The colorful Surgeonfish is found along the coast of Western Australia and throughout the waters of the Great Barrier Reef from Queensland to northern New South Wales. The most distinguishing characteristics of this marine species are its amazing ability to change color and its extremely sharp scutes and fins which give the Surgeonfish its name.
