This parrotfish lives in lagoons and seaward-reefs with corals and vertical reliefs.
Juvenile animals often live in groups or schools for reasons of protection, females are often found in mixed groups of fish, while adult males are more solitary and show a qualified territorial behavior.
Even snorkelers and swimmers can get quite near to this fish, because their depth range reach from very flat zones down to about 50 meters.
