Found over rocks in mainstream and in large soft-bottomed floodplain lagoons. Grazes algae and aufwuchs as well as detritus. A shoaling species, breeding in summer, possibly in flooded marginal habitats, as the young fish are caught in large numbers in fish-weirs set across floodwaters receding from floodplains (Ref. 7248).
