As fog descended upon the Reefs sea bed overnight early risers could have been forgiven for assuming that Halloween had come early.
The underwater mist was first reported at 04:45 when one of our listener/reader fish contacted the newsroom clearly distraught by what they described to us " swirling candyfloss that can't be eaten".
When queried on how he knows, Mr Kralluwr responded by stating that "it wasn't sweet, and everyone knows the Reef only contains sweet edible things, just like Mrs Rudders...", and then we had to end the quote there, due to both twitch terms of service, in addition to retaining some dignity, due to minority classes getting their backs up, like snowflakes.
Eager to stick to our promise that we shall always provide you with factual scientific jargon at Reef Radios Fishy News Newsroom for Fish that trust in cod, and continuing to keep you up-to-date in all the current affairs, we contacted Reef Commander Sciphi for verification and clarification on what this foggy mist stuff could be.
Sciphi told us that, "after numerous thoughts, we figured it could be something bad, and therefore ceased any and all studies we may or may not have been conducting at the time, just in case it gave us a verruca".
Later that day, frequent visitor and friend of King Fish the holy self, proclaimed Weeverfish the 1st, Myst_Z, or at least an activist on her behalf, took credit for what was "nothing more than a publicity stunt" and put to seabed any claims that the floating gas was toxic, harmful, or contained water from Michael Barrymore's pool party.
