Asia: Mekong and Chao Phraya basins; also the Mae Khlong basin (Thailand), the Malay Peninsula, and coastal streams of south-east Thailand and Cambodia.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits midwater to bottoms depths of small streams and weedy impoundments. Most abundant in impoundments with dense growth of aquatic macrophytes. Feeds mainly on zooplankton, along with some aquatic insect larvae and plant matter (Ref. 12693).
