Its body is a distinctive bright yellow in colour, with a blue or white circle around the eyes and blue behind the operculum. Juveniles have a blue ring on each side. It is native to the Indo-Pacific region, where it lives in lagoons and reefs and eats marine algae. In aquaria, it is suitable for fish only tanks. It may be kept in a reef tank, but with caution.
