Morphology | Morphometrics
Can be diagnosed by the having the following characters: bright red fins throughout life; 2 rows of pharyngeal teeth (usually 1,4-4,1 or 2,4-4,1); black vertical bar near base of caudal fin in breeding males; 49-63 lateral scales; 36-49 scales around body at dorsal fin origin; 23-30 rakers on 1st gill arch; and pectoral fin with 15-16 rays (Ref. 86798).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5156 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00387 - 0.02054), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
