    Biology: Adults are common among coral-rich areas of sheltered coastal reefs (Ref. 9710 ), with algae and staghorn corals to about 15 m depth, especially around the rock islands in Palau, they aggregate with A. curacao. They spawn in groups and each pair claims a small section of the reef (Ref. 7247 ). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205 ). Eggs are laid on a cleared section of the coral and guarded by the parents (Ref. 48636 ).
