Indo-West Pacific: west coast of India to Indonesia.

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?, range 8 - ? cm
Max length : 15.0 cm male/unsexed; (Ref. 12693)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits relatively still waters (Ref. 12693). Most frequently found in rivers, streams and estuaries. Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). Males maybe brooding at 7.8 cm SL (Ref. 5316). Feeds on worms, crustaceans and small zooplankton. Not seen in markets (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00049 (0.00022 - 0.00110), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.41 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
