The control of invasive species within Lake Lindu is recommended, as they are very abundant within the lake and could pose a significant threat. Surveys are also recommended to monitor the population trend of this species.
Location InformationThis species is endemic to Lake Lindu in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, which lies to the north-west of the larger Lake Poso.
The population of this species is thought to be stable (D.F. Mokodongan pers. obs. 2017, M. Herjanto pers. comm. 2018), although it may decline in the future from the impact of introduced species.
