Comments:
Mature females only have two spots on their flanks. In the wild, males build a large sandcastle bower against a small rock. Males then display to females who forage for plankton in the open water above these nests. Fry are released in very shallow water near palnts or among the rubble of the rocky shore after a large school of brooding females have migrated inshore. The females then abandon them and are left to fend for themselves, schooling in massive shoals.
