Coris pictoides inhabits sand and rubble areas adjacent to coral reefs in depths of 10 to at least 30 meters.
It has been recorded in shallow estuaries or lagoons, but appears more common in depths below 20 meters.
Coris pictoides reaches a maximum size of about 12 cm. Juvenilles are associated with sand living anemones (e.g. Stichodactyla haddoni).
