Five of My Favorite Killifish

Aphyosemion poliaki  

This fish comes from Mt. Cameroon, Cameroon.  Many different populations have been collected and there is quite a bit of variability in the coloration.


Fundulopanchax cinnamomeum

A beautiful fish with a unique color pattern.  From Nigeria and Cameroon.


Plataplochilus miltotaenia

This is one of the lampeye killies.  These are schooling killies from Gabon.


Pachypanchax patriciae

One of the killies of Madagascar.  These fish can live for at least 7 years. The colors get richer and deeper as they get older. This is a large male.


Hypsolebias carlettoi

In my opinion, this is one of the most stunning killies. It is an annual killie from northeast Brazil.
