Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201): 28.3 - 29.3, mean 28.7 °C (based on 212 cells).
Fylogenetische diversiteitsindex (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00044 - 0.00239), b=2.97 (2.77 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisch niveau (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
