Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Considered an easygoing and adaptable fish of long standing with aquarists. Is noteworthy among lake mouth brooders by the fact that both parents participate in the incubation of the brood, which implies that the mates are bonded in a monogamous relationship lasting until at least as long as the fry are incubated (Ref. 6770).

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=0.01445 (0.00677 - 0.03085), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 69278):  Medio, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 1.4-4.4 años (Fec=300).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
