Environment specifics[edit | edit source]
- This is typically associated with a blackwater environment, mainly in rivers. In central Amazon, it occurs both in black and clear waters but only in dense vegetation where here is minimal light. This fish inhabits water with low pH, low conductivity and low level of dissolved oxygen.
Identification[edit | edit source]
- Can be mistaken for juvenile Glanidium leopardum, with which it is distinguished by means of the pectoral spines (having projections vs. smooth) and by the number of rays in the anal fin (8-9 vs. 12-14).
