Abstract Amphidromous fish species contribute most to the diversity of fish communities  in the tropical insular rivers. Hence, their biological life cycle remains poorly known. The oto-lith elemental composition of three Sicydiinae species Sicyopus zosterophorum, Smilosicyopus chloe, Akihito vanuatu was investigated to describe their biological life cycle for the first time. The otolith analysis using a femtosecond laser ablation – inductively coupled plasma mass spec-trometer (fs-LA-ICP-MS) revealed an amphidromous life history for the three species as it sug-gested a habitat shift from a marine habitat to a freshwater environment. Also, several types of
elemental profiles were observed in the adult stage suggesting a diversity of behaviors and/or habitats. Water chemistry analyses would help understanding the origin of the ratios variations in the adult stage and would push forward our general understanding of Sicydiinae life cycle.
