Also known as Sea goldie. Diet: Zooplakton
Max. Size: 15 cm
Fun Fact: The Sea goldie is sexually dimorphic, which means that the males and females look different. The females are orange to yellow, while the males are purplish with a large purplish blotch on the pectoral fin. There is quite a bit of diversity in coloration even among the same sex of this species, the color patterns vary from one area to area. This species is a protogynous hermaphrodite and males are territorial and haremic. Female to male change is induced by the absence or removal of males from social groups with sex-reversal being completed in 2-4 weeks.
