Feeding Ecology And Diet

Feeds on insects and insect larvae, as well as zooplankton. REPRODUCTIVE BIOLOGY

Forms monogamous pairs in which both parents care for the young. Females lay clutches of about 100 eggs, which hatch in roughly 60 hours, on branches or sturdy leaves. Within 4-5 days, fry become mobile and begin feeding on mucous secreted from flanks of the parents, showing preference for the male. In captivity, this mode of feeding can last as long as 8 weeks, although other foods supplement the habit.

CONSERVATION STATUS Not listed by the IUCN.
