Pseudoepiplatys annulatus . A brightly coloured male.
Pseudoepiplatys (or Epiplatys) annulatus is a small delicate killifish that is abundant in the wild, and therefore often available in wild-caught shipments from West Africa. It does best when fed regularly with artemia and other small livefoods; fry will often grow up alongside their parents. Look at this picture of a male annulatus about to eat a fruit fly. Eggs are small and delicate, making picking them from mops less effective than with other species
