Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in pools and streams associated with artesian springs and bores (Ref. 5259, 44894). Lives in shaded areas around plants or rocks (Ref. 44894). Found in harsh environment characterized by rapid fluctuations in temperature and salinity (Ref. 5259, 44894). Field observations and laboratory experimentation indicate that it can withstand wide ranges of temperature (5°-41°C), salinity (0-60 p.p.t.), pH (6.8-11.0) and very low dissolved oxygen level (Ref. 44894). Feeds on insects, crustaceans, filamentous algae and detritus (Ref. 5259).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Female deposits eggs on the ceiling of a rocky crevice. Male guards the nest until hatching, which requires 10 to 17 days at temperatures ranging from 27°-30° C.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00692 (0.00306 - 0.01566), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.31 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm=0.5; Fec=20-250; assuming multiple spawning).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
