G. labiatus inhabits fast flowing water, whose bottom is covered with large rocks and coarse gravel. These fishes are very timid in the wild and lead a relatively reclusive life close to the substrate. The specimen above was caught in the Centurion River, a tributary of the Yaguarón River system in the border between Brasil and Uruguay, some 500 km northeast of Montevideo.
