Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur over rocky bottom in clear water, often near crevices and small caves, occasionally in kelp. Adults defend a home territory. Feed mainly on attached invertebrates. 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). Have been reared in captivity (Ref. 35420).
