Max length : 12.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 36377 ); common length : 5.6 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12193 )

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers coastal lacustrine environment which is slightly salty and turbid and which has mud or sand bottom. Feeds primarily on aquatic and terrestrial insects but also takes small fishes when available. Adults spawn among exposed roots at the lagoon edges and produce about 400-500 eggs.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01380 (0.00533 - 0.03577), b=3.00 (2.77 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.4   ±0.60 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
