Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found among coral outcrops and seagrass beds of silty areas of lagoon and coastal reefs (Ref. 9710 ), usually subtidal to a few meters depth (Ref. 48636 ). 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 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 27.7 - 29.3, mean 28.8 (based on 1620 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00690 - 0.03319), b=2.99 (2.80 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (25 of 100) .
