Habitat and Ecology
Field observation in collecting localities indicate a probable harem-type structure with a single nuptial male in company of up to about 10 smaller fish. Nesting was evident with nuptial males showing whitish borders on the caudal fin and exhibiting flashing 2–3 whitish bars on the side of the body. Nesting appears most commonly among submerged fallen trees where fish can quickly retreat to shelter (Jenkins and Allen 2002).
