MEET DORY THE BLUE TANG

The blue tang feeds mainly on algae which it can rip from coral and rocks with their sharp teeth.

Daydream Island Resort & Spa has its own blue tangs in the Living Reef lagoons and display tanks as well as resident clownfish in Nemoville, a popular section of the Living Reef.

“We’re lucky to have blue tangs, clownfish and many of the other marine species shown in the movies right here at Daydream Island,” said Daydream Island’s Living Reef Manager and resident marine biologist John Gaskell.

These Disney characters have become synonymous with the Great Barrier Reef and are amongst our most talked about species at Daydream.

“Portrayed as forgetful in the movie, there’s one thing they never seem to forget and that is feeding time!”

Daydream Island’s Living Reef comprises two large lagoons with over 80 varieties of coral and more than 140 species of fish including sharks, stingrays, giant barramundi and many tropical marine fish including the much loved clownfish.

The fringing reef around the island also provides some of the best snorkeling in the region with a rich diversity of marine life.

There’s no other island quite like Daydream, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. With a fringing reef a mere flipper’s kick from the beach and a Living Reef on the island itself, it’s an incredible place to not only live and learn about one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, but to experience it first hand.
