Habitat Requirements

Wide, shallow, flowing waters generally less than half a meter deep (1.6 ft) with sandy substrates, which are found in mainstem rivers in the arid prairie region of Texas. (Cited from Brazos River Shiners 2013 SSA, p. ii)

Reproductive Strategy

Broadcast-spawn eggs and sperm into open water asynchronously (fish not spawning at the same time) from April through September during periods of low flow and synchronously (many fish spawning at the same time) during periods of elevated streamflow. Their eggs are semi-buoyant and remain suspended one or two days in flowing water as they develop into larvae. Larval fish remain suspended in the flowing water column an additional two to three days as they develop into free-swimming juvenile fish. (Cited from Brazos River Shiners 2013 SSA, p. ii)
