Also known as the convictfish because of its stripes, these little fish range all the way from Alaska to Central Baja California. They are seen most often in fairly deep water, 50 to 100 feet, and blend in well with the reefs they inhabit. Highly territorial, they grow to a length of about 10 inches. Females grow bigger than the males in this species. Painted Greenlings are active during daylight hours, hiding out at night. They feed on the usual bottom-dwelling fare such as shrimps, worms, crabs and the like.
