Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits upper portions of outer reef slopes (Ref. 1602). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Hovers above the bottom, facing the current to feed on zooplankton, copepods, and crustacean larvae. Several individuals may share the same hole (especially juveniles). Has a habit of flicking its pennant-like first dorsal fin back and forth (Ref. 1602, 48637). Minimum depth reported from Ref. 9360. Monogamous (Ref. 52884).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturità | Riproduzione | Deposizione | Uova | Fecundity | Larve

Monogamous mating is observed as both obligate and social (Ref. 52884).
