Morphology | Morphometrics
Occurs in small streams with width up to 10 m, in bamboo forest with 60-80% shadow. The streams were characterized by swift-flowing and clear water with brown tint. The bottom was composed of mud with small stones and/or leaf litter. Associated fish species included the following: Danio kyathit, Oreichthys sp., Pethia didi, P. erythromycter, P. macrogramma, P. thelys, Puntius chola, Puntius sophore, Rasbora ornata, R. rasbora, Tor sp. (Cyprinidae), Acanthocobitis sp. (Nemacheilidae), Badis kyar (Badidae), Macrognathus obscurus (Mastacembelidae), Leiodon cutcutia (Tetraodontidae), Mystus pulcher (Bagridae), Notopterus notopterus (Notopteridae), Parambassis robertsi (Ambassidae), and Xenentodon cancila (Belonidae). Also found in a large stagnant, shallow portion in a levee depression on the bank of the Ayeyarwaddy, with muddy bottom and surrounded by grass fields. Associated fishe species were Badis corycaeus (Badidae), Parambassis robertsi (Ambassidae), and Acanthocobitis mandalayensis (Nemacheilidae) (Ref. 117334).
