The Chinamanfish lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 20 - 100 m environment.

Pictured above is a fairly young Chinamanfish! As this fish grows larger the rays on the dorsal fin will disappear and the light blue stripes will fade and the fish will take on a more reddish slightly mottled appearance. More
