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

"The entire reproductive sequence consisted of nest preparation by a male, courtship behaviors, nest entry by a female, spawning, and paternal care until the hatching of eggs." The sequence of behavior observed during courtship in the laboratory were as follows: "The male approached a female. The female responded to the male approach with yawning. In leading, the male returned to its nest. Tail-waving was performed during stopping." (Ref. 58424).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.2 - 28.9, mean 27.6 (based on 282 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00414 - 0.01920), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec = 34).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
