The Pacific Fat Sleepers are found demersal in both freshwater and marine environments over sandy and muddy substrates, such as estuaries, stagnant ditches, latifron low current velocity coastal creeks in water depths up to 6 feet and in coastal areas with elevations of under feet. Inhabit estuaries, stagnant ditches or creeks of low current velocity between the sea and an elevation of 30 m. Their anal and second dorsal fins have rows of spots. Benthic and most abundant on sandy and muddy bottoms.
