Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Lives mainly in small streams and waterholes in clear to moderately turbid water. Occurs over rocky or gravel bottoms or in well-vegetated areas, frequently around submerged logs and branches. Occurs at temperature and pH ranging from 22°-30° C and 5.2-7.0 respectively. Inhabits small creeks and waterholes in semi-rainforest or open grassland areas. Occasionally abundant in partly stagnant waterholes with leaf litter bottoms during the dry season. Species is easy to maintain and thrives in captivity (Ref. 44894).
