Occurs in shallow water, this species is associated with rocks and pebbles. It can also occur in very turbid and sediment rich waters. Feeds on invertebrates and loose aufwuchs. Spawns on the open sand or in seclusion. It is not territorial but males chase conspecific males from their feeding site. Known by its scientific name in the aquarium trade.
