Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit mangroves and sheltered bays (Ref. 90102). Occur among corals, rocks, and rubble of shallow waters (Ref. 1602, 58302). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
