Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Fish gather in shallow parts of rivers for spawning. A male presses laterally against a female and stirs up the river bed by vibrating his anal fin to bury released eggs. Satellites commonly cannibalize eggs (Ref. 5514).
