जीवविज्ञान     शब्द संग्रह (उदाहरणार्थ epibenthic)

Inhabits clear channels and seaward reefs (Ref. 9710). Juveniles are commonly found along drop-offs below 18 m (Ref. 9710). Adults usually found near caves while juveniles frequently live inside them. Adults are solitary and feed on algae and small invertebrates. Juveniles have been observed 'cleaning' other fishes. Because of its dentition, it is regarded as a close relative to the parrotfishes (Scaridae), although it behaves like the species of Anampses.
