Size: Size: 10 inches (25 cm)

Natural Environment: Inhabits rubble areas in lagoons and shallow front and backsides of reefs.

General Husbandry: Rarely seen in the home aquarium trade.

Best maintained in well-aged, wide open aquariums with lots of open areas to traverse and having various live rock formations containing algae films/organic films and little in the way of coral structures, and also collections of detritus. May also consume small invertebrate.

Since they are basically herbivorous and detritus feeders, occasional feedings with algae pellets may prove beneficial. Occasional feedings of small pieces of fish or mussel flesh is also recommended.
