Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Chrosomus eos is distinguished from a similar species C. erythrogaster by having more rounded, shorter (about equal to eye diameter) snout and more upturned mouth, with chin in front of upper lip. Other characters useful to identify this species include 70-90 lateral scales and red or yellow belly, head, and fins in large males (Ref. 86798).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits lakes, ponds, bogs, and pools of headwaters and creeks. Usually occurs over silt, often near vegetation (Ref. 86798). Feeds mainly on algae, but also on zooplankton and aquatic insects. Preyed upon by fishes, kingfishers and mergansers (Ref. 1998). Spawning occurs in spring or early summer (Ref. 1998). Used as bait in parts of Ontario and Quebec (Ref. 1998).

Life cycle and mating behavior Könsmognad | Reproduktion | Lek | Ägg | Fecundity | Larver

A female attracts a few males with her darting movements. Together, the group dives into a mass of filamentous algae and release sperm and nonadhesive eggs. The group spawns in several algal masses.
