Ecology of Selaroides leptolepis
 
Main Ref. Yamashita, Y., N. Piamthipmanus and K. Mochizuki, 1987
Remarks Inhabits coral reefs (Ref. 58534). Occurs in inshore waters of the continental shelf (Ref. 7300). Associated with seagrass (Ref. 118046). Forms large demersal schools over soft bottom habitats at depths shallower than 50 m. Sometimes ascends into freshwater reaches; encountered in the freshwater tidal zone in the Mekong delta (Ref. 12693). Ostracods, gastropods and euphausiids are common prey but small fish are also taken.
