Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in shallow (less than 0.5 m depth) peat swamps with substrate consisting mainly of detritus, leaves and peat (Ref. 12293 ). An oral brooder (Ref. 56613 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Assumed to be the same as in Betta picta , i.e., the male is carying the aggs in his mouth for about 10 days.

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=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
