A note[edit]

I don't know exactly how Wikipedia works, but I see you have not incorporated my suggested changes regarding the non-existent sex changes in garibaldi. This species does NOT change sex, nor do most of the damsels. Only a few relatives such as the anemone clownfish do.

I have hasd this verified by Dr. Paul Sikkel, who has done extensive work on the species, and Dr. Milton Love, a well-known ichthyologist and collaborator with me on a number of Cousteau projects.

I understand if the process takes time and perhaps you don't know my qualifications, but search on the two other experts I've suggested.

Thank you for your helpful note Bill and apologies that it took so long for your note to get a reply. I do however see that the changes you suggested were made. I wanted to point out that Wikipedia is the encyclopedia that anyone can edit, so please, if you notice errors elsewhere, feel free to make changes yourself, even if it means deleting the offending sentence or paragraph.
