Character: Dorsal rays XIII, 13-14; Anal rays II, 13-14; pectoral rays 17-18; lateral-line scales 18-19. Upper and lower accessory caudal rays not spinous. Posterior margin of preopercle serrated; vertral margin of infraorbital coarsely serrated. Both jaws with biserial teeth. Predorsal scales reaching above anterior nostril; no scales on infraorbitals. Upper and lower lobes of caudal fin without filamentous posterior rays. Body light to dark grey or dark brown, often with vertical blue streaks or spots on scales; numerous blue streaks and spots on head; base of pectoral fin without a black spot; caudal fin and caudal peduncle yellowish; ocellus present on rear part of dorsal fin. 
Habitat: Occurs solitarily or in small groups in lagoons, harbors, coastal reefs and outer reef slopes, frequently among branching alcyonarians at depth of 0 to 8m. Also found in mangrove creeks (sometimes in freshwater), brackish lagoons and shallow reefs exposed 
Distribution: Distributed in the western Pacific, including Indo-Malayan Archipelago, Taiwan, and the Ryukyu Islands. It is found in southern Taiwanese waters.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur solitarily or in small groups in lagoons, harbors, coastal reefs and outer reef slopes, frequently among branching alcyonarians. Also found in mangrove creeks (sometimes in freshwater), brackish lagoons and shallow reefs exposed to freshwater runoff; found well upstream in pure freshwater (Ref. 48636 ). Feed primarily on benthic algae. Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205 ). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205 ). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205 ). Diurnal species (Ref. 113699 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 24.7 - 29.3, mean 28.5 (based on 1956 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02344 (0.01118 - 0.04914), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
