Husbandry

Smith-Vaniz, 1976

Adults are found in coral reefs, usually on sheltered inshore reefs, they occur mainly solitarily in a depth range of 1 to 30 meters.

This specis is mimicked by Cheilodipterus parazonatus, juvenile Scolopsis margaritifer, juvenile Cheilodipterus zonatus, and also by the apogonid Cheilodipterus nigrotaeniatus, which is much more widespread and adapts in coloration to various Meiacanthus spp.
