Read full entry


This species was collected from a small natural shallow pond which is about 6 x 4 m in size, fed by the drainage of a nearby natural spring. During sampling, the water body was almost stagnant, water temperature at 23°C, no vegetation in the pond, but the surrounding area was covered with Juncus sp. and Typha sp. The bottom of the pond was generally muddy with small gravels, the habitat was in a bad condition due to anthropogenic pollution. This species was the only fish observed living in the pond, but it was also found in several springs located in close proximity to the type locality (Ref. 91277).
