Sprinkles and biology
The Tapah lives in large rivers and lakes, with muddy riverbeds and slow flowing water. This fish is very humid and usually hides in holes on river banks and canals or perpetuates itself on the riverbed in search of food. Tapah fish are strong predators. Food for adults includes smaller fish, crustaceans and molluscs, while juveniles mainly eat insects. Therefore, this fish is a destroyer fish, especially against other fish that are more valuable. Tapah fish breed in the summer before the rainy season. Therefore, many of these thorn fish can be found in summer.
