Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A common species (Ref. 9710) found singly or in small groups in exposed outer reef slopes and occasionally in clear lagoon reefs. Prefers areas of mixed dead and living corals with numerous shelter holes and passages (Ref. 1602). Feeds mainly on benthic algae. Forms harems of 3-7 individuals. Occasionally exported through the aquarium trade (Ref. 48391).
