"A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, partly elongated pectoral fins and a length of 40cm. Its body is blue with numerous yellow stripes along the side. A black line covers its eyes on both sides. Can be seen all over Manaurai in the summer.
Its patterns differ from infancy and adulthood. During infancy, it has a white, blue and navy-colored spiral pattern, but on reaching maturity, these spirals become horizontal lines.
In recent years, the pattern on this species has been mathematically proven to be a Turing pattern, the theory of which was proposed by Alan Turing. Turing was a great scholar and authority in the field of computer science who leant his name to the renowned Turing Award."
