Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Commonly found in bays and salt marshes near shore, may enter freshwater (Ref. 36572). Often used in laboratories for environmental studies. Not a seasonal killifish. Is very difficult to maintain in aquarium (Ref. 27139). Oviparous, with micro-nektonic larvae (Ref. 36572). Single demersal eggs are attached to spawning substrate via small weakly adhesive filaments (Ref. 36572).
