Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 9; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 12; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 12. Color changes quickly from when moving from swimming near the bottom to open water to feed and the striped pattern of the female fades to an even grey that makes them difficult to see. Males have a variable banded pattern and this also changes with moods (Ref. 48636).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Found in outer reef crests in small aggregations (Ref. 8631). Females occur in small groups, and usually a male is nearby (Ref. 48636). Usually well above open bottoms with mixed sand, rubble, and coral (Ref. 9710). Found in areas periodically exposed to strong currents (Ref. 90102). Feeds on zooplankton (Ref. 9710).

Life cycle and mating behavior Könsmognad | Reproduktion | Lek | Ägg | Fecundity | Larver
