Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Riverine species with gregarious habits, confined to large as well as moderate and small water systems (Ref. 43912). Forms schools (Ref. 6868). Carnivorous with insectivorous preference; reproduction probably coincides mainly with flood periods (Ref. 43912). Oviparous, eggs are unguarded (Ref. 205). Maximum total length recorded 148 mm (Ref. 43912, 81643).
