Adults are found over rocky substrate of inshore areas. They also inhabit tide pools and relatively deeper water (Ref. 55080). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Feed on crustaceans, including shrimps, amphipods (gammarids and caprellids), copepods, ostracods, isopods, and brachyuran crabs. Other food items include sipunculids, gastropods, chitons, and occasionally ophiuroids and echinoids, tunicates, algae, foraminifera, and fish material. Protogynous (Ref. 55080). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
