Husbandry

(Gill, 1862)

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Abudefduf troschelii to the famous ichthyologist Dr. Gerry R, Allen from Australia.
The photos were taken in Panama and around the Galapagos Islands.

This species is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found from southern California, USA and the Gulf of California to central Peru, including all the offshore islands.

This reef-associated species inhabits rocky and coral reefs to depths of 20 m, and is usually found in large aggregations. At Gulf of Chiriqui, Panamá, this fish could be found over massive corals, deep rocky walls, exposed shallow rocky reef and zones of madreporic branching coral. The diet of this diurnal feeder consists of plankton at the surface or mid-water, it also grazes on benthic invertebrates and algae on the reef.
