Epiplatys sexfasciatus


Epiplatys sexfasciatus
Six Banded Panchax
六间鱂鱼
There are numerous geographical variants of this species, and seven official subspecies currently exist. They are E. s. baroi, E. s. leonensis, E. s. multifasciatus, E. s. petersii, E. s. rathkei, E. s. sexfasciatus and E. s. togolensis. Some authors also group E. infrafasciatus under Epiplatys sexfasciatus but this is not currently valid. Aquarium care for all forms is basically identical. 

Unlike many other killifish species it is usually found in bodies of permanent water and is not an annual species.
