Inhabits ephemeral, water-filled depressions, pools and swamps mostly located in lowland floodplains. Water levels in these seasonally-variable habitats typically decrease during the dry season and eventually become completely dessicated for several months each year. PH values are typically 6.0 – 7.0.

Aquatic plant species include Nymphea, Ottelia, Lagarosiphon and Utricularia species with common sympatric fishes including the congeners N. kadleci and N. orthonotus plus Clarias gariepinus, Ctenopoma multispine, Protopterus annectens and unidentified ‘Barbus‘ spp. Some habitats are apparently used for low intensity, subsistence rice cultivation.
