Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 6; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 27-29; Taggstrålar i analfenan 2; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 27 - 30.

Usually in small groups but form large schools in oceanic locations or on reefs subject to strong currents (Ref. 48637). Juveniles and subadults feed on benthic algae; adults feed on zooplankton.
