Husbandry

Smith-Vaniz, 1987

Meiacanthus crinitus is a shallow water species, that forms small aggregations in well protected narrow bays or inlets, usually in sponge habitats.
Adults may be found solitary or in pairs.
Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters and mimics the young of Pentapodus trivittata.
