Found on temporary pools, floodplains, swamps, rice fields, ditches and small streams (Ref. 3788). A slow-moving fish usually found in sections of a river where aquatic vegetation provide some cover (probably as a means of avoiding predators). Feeds on mosquito larvae, small crustaceans and other aquatic organisms (Ref. 6465). Used for mosquito larva control. Collection for the aquarium trade is controlled (Ref. 7248). Bottom spawner, 3-5 months incubation; it is difficult to maintain in aquarium (Ref. 27139).
