A year ago, Rehan, Year 5, noticed that some of the octopi he saw during his regular snorkelling trips with his Dad have a particular fish (brown-spotted wrasse) always next to them. He followed a few at different reefs and was convinced that it’s not by chance but by choice that the fish are there. He investigated this theory and realized that it is a unique type of relationship among reef species called ‘Nuclear–follower foraging’.
