Morphology | Morphometrics
Diagnosed from its congeners by having the following characters: caudal peduncle depth 1.6-1.9 times in its length; snout blunt; 50-55 + 2-3 scales along lateral line; anal fin with 7-8½ branched rays; and midlateral stripe weakly marked, almost each scale of side with a dark grey spot, often forming small stripes (Ref. 59043).
Occurs in streams, preferring cool and swift waters associated with springs (Ref. 59043). Inhabits clear waters of rivers and lakes where it forms small schools in the middle or upper layers of the water as well as close to the bottom. Frequents areas with aquatic plants. Field observations have shown that adults feed on zooplankton, small insects and larvae (Ref. 12266). Spawns in January-March (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to pollution, water abstraction and habitat destruction (Ref. 26100).
