Occur inshore over sand and mud with seagrass, taking refuge among tentacles of snake locks sea anemone Anemonia sulcata (Ref. 4696). Resistant against the strong poison of the snake-locks anemone Anemone viridis (Ref. 92840). Also found in inshore pools (Ref. 4696). Macrobenthos feeder on hard substrates (Ref. 92840), feed on polychaetes, crustaceans (esp. amphipods) mollusks and algae. Sexually mature at one year, 3.4-3.8 cm (Ref. 4696).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm=1; Fec = 1,200).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
