Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Inhabits clear lagoon and seaward reefs. Juveniles are usually found in caves or under ledges and act as cleaners by picking at bodies of other fishes (adults occasionally do this) (Ref. 1602). Feeds mainly on benthic, hard-shelled, invertebrates such as molluscs and crustaceans (Ref. 9823). Not commonly marketed for food. Occasionally seen in the aquarium trade. [details]
