Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Dark vertical bar present below each dorsal fin and on caudal base; a fourth bar may be present between the 2nd dorsal and the caudal base; normally with large ocellus above pectoral fins; pelvic fins black, pectoral fins light, other fins dusky to dark in color (Ref. 4329).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur inshore (Ref. 7300) and in deep offshore reefs (Ref. 9710). Found among weeds (Ref. 1623). Nocturnal species. Feed at night on zooplankton (Ref. 43448). Have been reared in captivity (Ref. 35416). Mouthbrooders, the males incubate the eggs (Ref. 43448).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24 - 29.1, mean 27.6 (based on 824 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01549 (0.00934 - 0.02568), b=2.97 (2.82 - 3.12), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.50 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 (11 of 100) .
