It is found on rock crevices from low intertidal to a depth of 18 meters (Ref. 865). Juveniles occur in crevices and other cryptic sites during daytime; moves out at night to forage and returns to home site at dawn. Adults stay on home sites; forages on drift algae and occasionally on attached algae (Ref. 101619). Broadcast spawners, breeds year-round. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
