Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit still or gently flowing water of streams, pools, lakes, swamps and reservoirs, usually in well vegetated, shallow margins. Tolerant of temperatures to at least 38°C and pH range of 4.5-8.1 (Ref. 44894). Commonly found in rivers, creeks and lagoons. Nocturnal species (Ref. 7300). Solitary, carnivore. Most of its time is spent sitting motionless among plant cover waiting to ambush small fishes and crustaceans. Aquatic and terrestrial insects are also consumed (Ref. 44894). Males are mouthbrooders (Ref. 205).
