Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lower river to middle river valleys as well as lake. Prefers moderate flowing streams and large rivers with strong currents which are clear, clean and high in oxygen content. Can be found over rocks, sand, silt, or mud. Occurs in most all the habitats available within its small territorial boundaries.

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

Parents care for eggs and larvae. Larvae feed on the thickened skin of the parents. Pairs may stay together for a long time (Ref. 40602).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02239 (0.01251 - 0.04007), b=3.08 (2.92 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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 to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
