It's an Aphanius (killi), don't recall species name though. Matt knows all about it.

According to my books it´s a Aphanius anatoliae transgrediens but Matt is the real expert.

Aphanius danfordii probably from "Soysalli", beautiful turkish Aphanius.

Careful with sex ratio though, alkaline water gives mostly males and soft neutral - slighty acidic water mostly females. Tricky issue with this species.

Confusion here, I always thought it was Aphanius sureyanus as per the video that Graham posted? /unsure.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":unsure:" border="0" alt="unsure.gif" />

Don't think that species is in the states but the very similar A. transgrediens is. Bear in mind that the dark patterning is only displayed by spawning males, though.

Cake or death?
