Clown Killifish (Epiplatys annulatus) – Group of 5 Fish


A tiny and beautifully patterned Killifish found throughout much of West Africa, the Clown Killi has been popular in the aquarium hobby for years despite being somewhat difficult to find. In the wild, these fish are found in aggregations in lowland tropical swamps and tiny streams, usually in acidic, tannin-stained waters. In the aquarium, they are relatively hardy but do best in warm, slightly soft water with ample cover in the form of plants or branching driftwood. Like most Killifish, they tend to swim close to the water’s surface and will jump if given the opportunity so a tight fitting cover is essential. A social fish, they will do best in groups of 8-10 or more, and if given ample space will form pairs and sometimes spawn.
