Husbandry

Chlorurus enneacanthus lebt meist an flachen Saumriffen in Gebieten mit toten Steinkorallen und über Geröllfeldern.
Hier ernährt er sich von den dort wachsenden Algen.
Vor Ort ist er ein beliebter Speisefisch.

The consumption of this animal can cause the dreaded ciguatera fish poisoning.
