Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Reported to be almost always associated with living coral reefs and juveniles are often found near black coral and gorgonians (Ref. 75973). Juveniles often shelter near black corals and gorgonians; also frequent cave ceilings (Ref. 8631). Feed mainly on benthic invertebrates such as mollusks and crustaceans. Juveniles regularly remove parasites from other fishes (Ref. 48636). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.1 - 28.9, mean 27.6 (based on 446 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01202 (0.00553 - 0.02613), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.48 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 to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
