Nobody has ever told the reef fish of the Gay Kingdom those straight
forward "birds and bees" stories - a high proportion of the fish in
the Gay Kingdom are able to change their sex at some time in their
life. Some of them are protogyny - they start as males then switch
to females - others are protogny - they start as females and switch
to become males. Some of the fish in the kingdom are monandric, that
is they are all born one sex and only switch to the other sex later.
Other species may be born either sex but some of them may later
The tiny blue and gold angelfish found in the reef just off the Gay
Capital is an axample of protogyny. These fish live in a small group
of four to seven which control a territory of several square meters.
The group usually consists of one large dominant male with a harem
fish although there may sometimes be "bachelor" male fish
present. The dominant male guards the groups territory and warns off
any intruding angel fish. At mating time the male mates with all the
females in the group. If the dominant male dies the largest female
changes sex and takes over.
The opposite situation can be observed in the clown fish "famous
because of the Disney movie FINDING NEMO" This group of fish in the
Gay Kingdom usually consists of a large female and a group of
smaller male. The female mates with only one of the males and this
male fish then keeps all the other "bachelor" clown fish inline. If
something happens to the female then the chief male switches sex and
becomes a female and the most dominant of the bachelor males takes
over as the chief male.
Many scientists have visited the reefs of the Gay Kingdom and have
postulated a number of reasons for this gay state of affairs. Life
on the reef is
very much dog eat dog, if changing sex were not
possible and the sole male or female in the group dies then the
group cannot reproduce. As it is now, there's just a quick change of
sex on the part of one fish and life continues as normal.
