Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Usually found on rocks and rubble; very stationary and territorial. The center of the territory is a crack or fissure in the rock. Feeds mainly on crustaceans which are picked from rocks and very occasionally from drifting matter (Ref. 6770). Aquarium keeping: in pairs; minimum aquarium size 60 cm (Ref. 51539).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-1.76000 (nan - nan), b=2.96 (2.79 - 3.13), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.50 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 (13 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
