Found in rocky streams flowing through steep-sided valleys. May also be found on mud bottom lowland creeks if the specimen from the Bulloo River, Queensland is identified to be this species. Spawning occurs at temperatures over 20°C. Females lay between 200 and 800 eggs, usually on the underside of a hard object. The male guards the eggs until hatching, which takes about 7 days. Fry are approximately 5 millimeters long and there is no parental care after hatching. A poorly known species (Ref. 44894).
