Biologie     Verklarende woordenlijst (b.v. epibenthic)

Usually associated with clear water, swift current and stony to rocky substrate (Ref. 27732). Found in small and medium-sized rivers. Borrows in sand or digs holes under rocks. Enters the flooded forest during the high-water periods and returns to the rivers during November and December in the lower Mekong. Feeds on mollusks and crustaceans. Intolerant of nitrates, it rapidly disappears from areas where fertilizers are applied to crops. Occasionally seen in fish markets (Ref. 12693).
