Max length : 5.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 37787)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 33 - 36. Without lateral line, without infraorbital process; with mostly 7 branched dorsal fin rays and 10 branched anal fin rays. Can be distinguished from other Danio species by the following combination of characters: narrow, indistinct dark vertical bars anteriorly on the sides, followed by a wide, indistinct, tapering horizontal stripe to the end of the caudal peduncle; barbels absent.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in high concentrations in large rivers, tributaries and ditches in clean, turbid or even polluted water over bedrock or gravel, sand, mud substrates. Fish collected from late March to the middle of April 1995 appeared to be sexually mature (Ref. 36341).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00340 - 0.01694), b=3.04 (2.85 - 3.23), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
