Ecsenius pulcher is known only from the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, coast of Oman, and northwestern coast of the Indian subcontinent as far south as the Gulf of Kutch, but the famous American ichthyologist, Dr. John Ernest Randall, took a photo on the Bahamas!
Ecsenius pulcher needs a herbivorous diet composed of benthic algae and seaweeds.
