Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits large upland rivers. Seems to avoid standing water. Little is known about its biology. Like other members of the genus, it probably feeds mainly on plant matter and occasionally on insects and insect larvae (Ref. 12693). Also reported to prefer deep pools in the river and to migrate into streams, canals and lakes during the flood season. Migrates in large schools (Ref. 37770). Migrates together with Cosmochilus harmandi, Cirrhinus spp., Labeo chrysophekadion and Bangana sp (Ref. 37770). Marketed fresh (Ref. 12693).
