Inhabits muddy creeks draining mangrove samphire plains or freshwater floodplains, also artificial habitats such as water buffalo wallows and concrete drains. Always seen near the coast in low-salinity environments (0-9% sea water). Spawned in captivity. About 30 eggs were laid, which took 9 days to hatch at 25°C. After hatching the young were observed clinging to the walls of the aquarium, apparently feeding on algae (Ref. 44894).
