  Male Sergeant Major with his purple egg patch on side of reef ball.jpg - Damselfish (Sergent Major) protecting egg cluster (purple on upper Reef Ball).  Usually, damselfish like to spawn on the smooth inside surface of a Reef Ball...usually just after deployment when it is the most clean.  In this case, the damselfish is taking advantage of the relatively clean surface of the reef ball produced by the sandblasting effiect of the recent hurricane.
