Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 23-33; Radios blandos anales: 4. Fine lines on the head and series of spots over the back and along trunk; caudal fin mainly pink (Ref. 48635).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit shallow protected areas of rubble and sand (Ref. 37816), usually semi-silty zones (Ref. 48635). Occur more commonly at depths between 0 and 3 m. Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). Males carry the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). Males may be brooding at 9.0 cm SL. Adults nearly always in pairs (Ref. 48635). Solitary, pairs or in small groups (Ref 90102).

Life cycle and mating behavior Madurez | Reproducción | Puesta | Huevos | Fecundidad | Larva

Monogamous mating is observed as both obligate and genetic (Ref. 52884). Male carries the eggs in a brood pouch (Ref. 205).
