BiologyAdults inhabit lagoon and near shore reefs, usually among branching corals. Found in small aggregation, usually with Acropora corals (Ref. 48636). Feed on plankton about 0.3 to 0.5 m above substratum. Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).
