Description Inhabits reef flats and lagoon and seaward reefs to a depth of over 30 m. Occurs over coral, rock, pavement, or rubble substrates. May occur singly or in small to very large, often mixed-species aggregations. Feeds on surface film of bluegreen algae and diatoms (making this species a key link in the ciguatera food chain) as well as on various small invertebrates. Often caught by spearfishing. [details]
