Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in swamps (Ref. 57235), ponds, streams and drains (Ref. 13061), usually in slow flowing, often somewhat turbid water (Ref. 27732). Found from midwater level to surface in nearly all ponds, ditches, canals and reservoir margins of 2 m depth or less (Ref. 12693). Inhabits medium to large rivers, flooded fields and brooks of the middle Mekong (Ref. 12975). Feeds on zooplankton, insects (Ref. 12693), worms and crustaceans (Ref. 7020). Very popular aquarium fish (Ref. 57235).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00192 - 0.01087), b=3.08 (2.88 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-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 (tm<1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
