  • fresh and brackish waters (ref: Wiki)
  • Males carry eggs on a supraoccipital hook; uses its lobed swimbladder, linked to ribs and lateral line nerve, as acoustic apparatus (ref: BerrAday2004)
  • Temp range 21-31 C (ref: BerrAday2004)


  • males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} only
