Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit shallow, coral or rocky bottoms and sometimes near the shore in areas with little visibility (Ref. 9626 ). Juveniles were collected from tide pools and on rocky Lithothamnion reefs; adults found up to 15 m depth (Ref. 40395 ). A diurnal species, adults feed on benthic algae, polychaetes and harpacticoid copepods (Ref. 9626 ); also consume hydroids and sponges and has been observed to feed on Abudefduf saxatilis eggs at night (Ref. 9626 ). 16:21 SL/TL (Ref. 9626 ). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding; eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate; males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 23.6 - 28.1, mean 27.3 (based on 775 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01660 (0.01019 - 0.02702), b=3.00 (2.87 - 3.13), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.23 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
