Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Lives in forest creeks where the water is clear and fast moving with medium sunny conditions, shallow depth (10-60 cm) and sandy-rocky substrate along with Corydoras guianensis, Moenkhausia oligolepis and Phenacogaster cf. megalostictus. Like R. cf. platyura, mature males develop some odontodes on each side of the head as well as some odontodes elongated towards the back of the interorbitals (Ref. 35381).
