Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 10 - 11; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 13-14; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 8. Snout somewhat pointed. Eye large. Preorbital bone narrow, its width much less than eye diameter. Preopercular notch and knob well developed. Scale rows on back rising obliquely above lateral line. Generally pink or reddish, white or silvery below. Usually a series of ten to twelve stripes is on the side. Some specimens have black spot on the back below the anterior part of the soft dorsal fin.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coral reefs. Often seen in schools near outcrops or drop-offs, often with other species (Ref. 9710), of up to about 30 to 40 individuals. Small juveniles on shallow algae reef, often near freshwater run-offs (Ref. 48635). Feed on fishes, shrimps, crabs, other crustaceans, cephalopods and some planktonic items.
