Fantasy Biology

One of the most enigmatic species of fish found on Liza's Reef are the graceful Star Rays. These huge fish, with wingspans of up the 20 feet, travel vast distances in the South Pacific oceans and always in groups of up to 30 individuals. Yearly, they visit the southern edge of the reef, where the Snow Corals grow. The reasons for their annual migration are unknown but it is suspected that it has to do with a large algae bloom that occurs on the reef at that time of year.
