Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Highly stenotopic, restricted to rocky habitat and prefers sheltered areas; habitat features gentle slopes with small stones or rubble, cemented by calcite, with fine sediment in spaces between rubble, and stones with stromatolite growth; often associated with bivalve shell accumulations covering large areas (always Pleiodon spekii), shells are cemented together and provide many small spaces for refuge and breeding; most common at 7 to 15 m depth and locally very abundant; excavates crevices that function as refuges; substrate spawner forming large congregations; ingests sediment or plankton; poor disperser; home range 20-200 cm in diameter (Ref. 74422).
