Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Juveniles inhabit shallow, protected, turbid inshore waters while adults prefer deeper areas of protected bays and lagoons. This schooling species feeds on diatoms, detritus film of sand, filamentous algae, hydroids, and pieces of fish (Ref. 1602). Generally at depths greater than 20 m (Ref. 2334). Fairly rare around Tahiti due to overfishing. Caught by handline and spearfishing. [details]
