Siganus luridus is to find mostly in small schools in very shallow water near the floor rather than stony ground. Like all rabbit fishes, also Siganus luridus has a spines in his dorsal fin which he can use as defend against a potential enemie. Because of the Suez Canal, the rabbit fish is found already in the Mediterranean.
