Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rivers of all sizes, but mainly in smaller streams, canals and on floodplains. Occasionally found in impoundments, but usually stays in the flowing streams leading to the impoundment. Moves into seasonally inundated areas and breeds at the start of the rainy season. Young of the year appear in streams in July and August. Adults leave the floodplains when the water recedes in December or January (Ref. 12693). Captured from the wild for the ornamental fish trade in Thailand (Ref. 6459). Marketed fresh or made into prahoc along the Tonle Sap (Ref. 12693).
