Clearly an adaptable fish as it has been collected various types of habitat including swiftly-flowing forest hill streams with substrates of boulders, smaller stones, sand or gravel and more sluggish blackwaters associated with areas of ancient peat swamp forest which are typically full of fallen leaves, twigs and branches. In the former the water tends to be clear with a pH between 6.5 and 7.5 whereas in the latter it is characteristically stained brown due to the release of tannins and other chemicals released by decomposing organic matter, very soft (negligible hardness) and acidic (pH 4.0 – 6.0). Such forested environments are often dimly-lit due to the tree canopy above. It also inhabits permanent bodies of water including many reservoirs and lakes and is known to move into flooded areas during the wet season across some of its range.

Maximum Standard Length

Fully-grown at around 6″/15cm which is significant as it is usually sold at a much smaller size.
