Remarks Found mainly in freshwater and estuaries, but also enters the sea (Ref. 4833). Also occurs in canals, ditches and ponds (Ref. 12693). Found in clear to turbid streams with rock, gravel or sand bottoms (Ref. 2847). Encountered in medium to large-sized rivers of the lower Mekong (Ref. 12975).
