Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coral reefs where it lives among the venomous tentacles of large sea anemones (Ref. 85309). Occur in shallow and calm lagoons. Are protandrous hermaphrodites (Ref. 32167). Distinct pair is monogamous (Ref. 32167). 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). One of the most popular marine aquarium fishes. Bred artificially in Florida for the aquarium trade. Associated with the anemones: Heteractis magnifica, Stichodactyla gigantea, and Stichodactyla mertensii (Ref. 5911). Has been reared in captivity (Ref. 35410, 35413, 35415, 35418, 35420).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01120 (0.00513 - 0.02445), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.5 se; Based on diet studies.
Resiliencia (Ref. 69278):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (tm<1; Fec=600).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
