Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

This species is generally commensal with the anemone Heteractis magnificus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1833) at depths between about 4-10 m (Ref. 85065). 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).
