Reproductive behavior and early development of the empire fish hypseleotris compressus eleotridae

Reproductive behavior and early development of the empire fish hypseleotris compressus eleotridae

Australian Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research 29(5): 585-598

H. compressus is a small Australian freshwater eleotrid which is sexually dimorphic. The colorful male is involved in aggressive courtship displays throughout a protracted breeding season and also guards the eggs during short development. The female is capable of spawning repeatedly throughout the breeding season and it is estimated that at least 40,000 eggs/season are produced. The eggs are very small, approximately 0.32 mm on the longest axis, and are transparent and adhesive. Hatching usually occurs between 10 and 14 h after fertilization. The newly hatched prolarvae are poorly-developed, without rayed fins or an alimentary tract. Development was observed for 10 days by which time the yolk was lost but no larvae survived beyond this point.
