Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 28 - 30. Brightly colored; body depth 4.2-4.6 times in SL; lateral line complete; 1 or 2 scale rows between lateral line and mid-ventral scale rows in front of pelvic fin (Ref. 12693).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occur in streams, canals and ditches in lowland floodplains. Usually found right at the water surface and is easily recognized by the broad black margin on the bright yellow caudal fin. Feed on exogenous insects (Ref. 12693). Spawning sites are found in rivers and ponds (Ref. 33813). Mature adults probably breed during the rainy season. Occasionally seen in fish markets (Ref. 12693).
