Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits ledges and caves and crevices of steep outer reef slopes; occasionally found in clear lagoon reefs (Ref. 9071). It is secretive and rarely goes out more than a few centimeters from an escape hole (Ref. 9710). Forms pairs or small groups. Usually starves when kept in captivity (Ref. 48391). Often upside-down (Ref. 48636). Occasionally exported through the aquarium trade.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.3 - 29.1, mean 27.5 (based on 348 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.03090 (0.01501 - 0.06362), b=2.89 (2.71 - 3.07), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.33 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
