Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found in rivers, creeks, drains, ponds, dune lakes and reservoirs. Usually occurs in still or slow-flowing conditions near the surface or around vegetation, log snags, or other debris. Occurs in both sandy coastal habitats and forested areas farther inland. Water conditions vary from very soft and acidic (coastal) to relatively alkaline (inland). The pH and temperature ranges are 5.4-7.8 and 16°-28°C, respectively (Ref. 44894). Omnivore (Ref. 75154). A popular aquarium fish which readily breeds in captivity. Life span in the wild is probably 3-4 years (Ref. 44894).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 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):  2.9   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
