Aphyosemion splendopleure (BRÜNING, 1929)

Splendid Killifish

March 13th, 2012 — 1:20pm

There exist several different colour forms of this species depending on collection locality, and these should not be kept together in order to prevent hybridisation and preserve bloodlines. It has been classified in the subgenus Chromaphyosemion by some authors who consider that nominal grouping to represent a monophyletic branch of a paraphyletic Aphyosemion.
