Inhabits very shallow water of flowing streams, canals ditches and marshes (Ref. 12693). Occurs from completely freshwater habitats downstream to brackish waters of the estuarine zone (Ref. 12693). Prefers areas of considerable plant growth (Ref. 12693). Feeds on zooplankton (Ref. 12693). Not seen in markets (Ref. 12693).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5020 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00444 - 0.02358), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.45 se; based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming Fec < 1,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
