Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 7 - 8;
Vertebrae: 26. Snout pointed and jaws extending posteriorly to behind eye in males and to posterior half of eye in females; body with large ocellate brown spot at mid-base of caudal fin; broad brown stripe extending from tip of second first dorsal fin spine onto mid-side of body, ending in rounded dark blotch or spot; and brown triangular mark crossing cheek below eye to rictus. Second dorsal rays usually I,7; anal rays usually I,8; pectoral rays 15-17, modally 16; longitudinal scales 24-28; transverse scales backward 7-8 1/2; predorsal scales 8-12 cycloid; anteriormost scale largest, entering interorbital space; headpores reduced, only posterior interorbital, postorbital, and two preopercular pores present (Ref. 56945).
In Brunei, both adults and juveniles were encountered frequently in small, shallow and clear, tannin-stained mangrove pools and rivulets among Nypa and Rhizophora roots and litter at low tide, usually well back from the main stream (Ref. 56945). In Indonesia, specimens were also collected from tannin-stained, fresh-tasting water, but a non-mangrove habitat (Ref. 56945).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5078 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00406 - 0.01955), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
