      Biology: Inhabits rocky areas of seaward reefs as well as rich coral areas. Feeds on algae; forms harems of 3-7 individuals. Frequently exported through the aquarium trade. Forms hybrids with Centropyge vrolikii in areas where these 2 species are sympatric, and hybrids with the C. flavissima have been recorded in the Christmas I. and Cocos-Keeling islands in the eastern Indian Ocean.
