A Surgeon fish named locally as ‘Labahita’ is believed to help heal faster the damages brought by the foreign vessels in the Tubbataha reef in the country, Philippines.

The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF)-Philippines believed that this fish is of big help in regeneration of the coral reef. The fish has the ability of continuously grazing on algae keeping the seaweeds to take over the exposed rocks which then allowing coral larvae to settle on the scars brought by the two vessels.
I have blogger friend who asked me if I have any good idea about the most probable reasons why her aquarium pets just suddenly became sickly lately and some others are dying already. I told her that there might be pests inside her aquarium that is causing the deaths and sickness of her pets. I also added that she better ask veterinary doctors what’s the most appropriate medication to use in her aquarium.
But she jokingly said she could use their phantom bug spray for the termites in their house and mix it in the aquarium water. I told her if you wish to make the death of your fishes faster, then do so. LOL!
How I wish I could visit any nearest ocean and feel the bountiful nature’s best ocean as we celebrate World Oceans Day 2013 today!
