Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found in the littoral zone, in rocky areas and seagrass beds. Act as "cleaners". Feed on worms, small amphipods, copepods, bryozoans and hydrozoans (Ref. 4742). Males keep watch over Cystoseria-covered spawning territory though no nesting is done (Ref. 4742). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Males build dish shaped nests and guard the eggs (Ref. 205).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 17.6 - 21.8, mean 19.3 °C (based on 481 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00545 - 0.01597), b=3.00 (2.85 - 3.15), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.1 se; based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
