Kyphosus cinerascens can be encountered in almost all regions of the reef into the lagoons as well as in the free water in front of the reefs, often in large schools. Often, they are under jetties and graze algae from the poles. In the course of the day they usually swim in open water just below the surface, where they hunt for zooplankton. At night they stay mostly singly or in small groups near the bottom.
Kyphosus cinerascens reached an approximate size of 50 cm, is therefore not really suitable for an aquarium.
