Doryichthys deokhatoides is a species of freshwater fish of the family Syngnathidae. It is found in the Mekong basin, Chao Phraya basin, Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo.[1] It lives among grasses, roots or shore vegetation in slow moving river stretches, where it can grow to lengths of 18.5 centimetres (7.3 in).[2] It is benthopelagic. This species is ovoviviparous, with males carrying eggs in a brood pouch before giving birth to live young.[1] This species is normally found along river stretches with a slow current, amongst grasses, roots or marginal vegetation.[3]
