Specimens were collected adjacent to a rocky shore among aquatic vegetation and submerged Pandanus roots. Except for the holotype, only juveniles were collected, but adult fish were observed among dense vegetation at depths below 2 to 3 m. Other species present in the lake were provisionally identified as follows: Neosilurus brevidorsalis (Plotosidae), Craterocephalus fistularis (Atherinidae), Mogurnda new species (Eleotridae), and Oxyeleotris nullipora (Eleotridae) (Ref. 87110).
