Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 6 - 8; Vertebrae: 26. Body grey with 5-7 oblique black bands across sides; bands interspersed with black spots and chevron-shaped black markings; 2 oval spots on base of caudal fin (Ref. 43716). Longitudinal scales 26-31; TRB 8-13; predorsal scales 11-13, anteriormost enlarged, placed close behind eyes; scales on body mostly ctenoid; dorsal fin rounded, without elongate or filamentous spines, black spot usually on anterior half of fin (Ref. 43716). Caudal fin rounded (Ref. 43716).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected mostly from tidal streams and muddy mangrove creeks and may not travel very far up into more brackish habitats. Could be kept in captivity for some weeks in seawater; can feed on live brine shrimp (Ref. 43716). Spawn in fresh water in captivity. Eggs hatch in 6-7 days at about 27°C (Ref. 44894).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00794 (0.00365 - 0.01726), b=3.11 (2.93 - 3.29), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.3 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) .
