Belonion apodion

The Belonion apodion lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

Belonion apodion, which grows only to about 2 in (5 cm), is unusual in that it deftly snaps up individual rotifers, which are less than 0.004 in (0.1 mm) long and usually pass through the gill rakers of filter-feeding planktivorous fishes. More
