Description Occurs in areas of coral, rock, or rubble to lagoon and seaward reefs from lower surge zone to a depth of 90 m. Feeds mainly on leafy brown algae (@Sargassum@ and @Dictyota@). The species is very seldom poisonous (Ref. 4795). Pair-spawning has been observed. The Indian Ocean form differs in having a largely orange-yellow dorsal fin and a black band in caudal fin.  [details]
