Gabon, Angola, Cameroon (wild form)
Substrate spawner: eggs laid on plants or in substrate and usually hatch in about 14 days. First foods for fry: vinegar eels, baby brine shrimp, microworms.
Carnivorous. Prefers live foods, but also usually accepts frozen foods and dry foods.
Prefers a planted tank and looks best against a darker substrate. Use a tight fitting cover as all Killifish are expert jumpers. Keep either in a single species tank or with similar sized peaceful species. Males are more colourful and have longer fins.
