Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Occur in monogamous pairs in coastal coral-rich areas (Ref. 47838, 48636). Juveniles hide among branches of small corals, often in lagoons (Ref. 9407). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Feed solely on live corals (Ref. 47838). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Form pairs during breeding (Ref. 205).
