Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4832 ); common length : 2.5 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 6028 )

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs mainly in heavily shaded streams and rivulets, preferring shallow, slow-flowing water with silt substrate and leaf debris. Omnivorous, the gut containing detritus, green algae, diatoms, dipterans and animal matter. About 200 eggs are scattered among marginal plants. Young hatch in 1-2 days and are free-swimming after 48 hours. Aquarium keeping: in groups of 5 or more individuals; minimum aquarium size 60 cm (Ref. 51539 ).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00508 - 0.02720), b=3.01 (2.84 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.8   ±0.1 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm<1, Fec=150-250). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
