  • Length-weight: (W in g) = 0.00895 * (standard length in cm)^3.46; Error in fishbase: FL must be SL! (ref: fishbase)
  • Male tends the eggs by storing them in his mouth; males' mouths get larger during the breeding season and the male quite often eats his eggs (ref: Wiki)
  • This fish is host to the parasitic chondracanthid copepod Pseudacanthocanthopsis apogonis (ref: Wiki)
