Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit slow flowing, often turbid waters over mud or gravel bottoms. Feed primarily on algae (Ref. 5259, 44894). Small mouth equipped with rows of flattened teeth is suited fro scraping algae off rocks, wood and bottom litter (Ref. 44894). Eggs are guarded and fanned by the male parent (Ref. 205). Aquarium conditions: pH=7, H=8, 26°C water temperature, egg layer, peaceful community fish requiring rock and plant cover (Ref. 6398). Not much is known of the biology (Ref. 2906).
