Usually encountered solitarily or in small groups containing up to 4 individuals on sheltered reefs in the vicinity of Triton Bay at depths of about 5-20 m. It was often seen on algal-covered rocky surfaces, but on one occasion was found among the branches of an unidentified gorgonian sea fan. The brood pouch is found immediately behind the anal fin and occupies the ventral surface of the first 10 tail rings (one pouch contained 34 ripe eggs with diameter ca 0.7 mm (Ref. 74959).
