Fundulopanchax amieti

20. October 2023

Once again we have received Amiet´s Lyretail. Fundulopanchax (formerly: Aphyosemion) amieti is a magnificent, easy to care for and peaceful killifish. Our animals are German offspring. Originally the species comes from tropical Africa, the southwest of Cameroon (Sanaga system).

Killifishes are generally considered to be fish for specialists, which live only a short time and have high demands on water values. This is true for some species, but not at all for others. Caring for Fundulopanchax amieti is no more difficult than caring for platies in terms of water values. The lyretail also has a similar life expectancy as platys, usually 2 years, sometimes longer. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that killifish love peace and quiet. They should never be socialized with bullies or too lively fish, otherwise the killies will hide all the time and and fade away.  

For our customers: the animals have code 304404 on our stocklist. Please note that we supply exclusively to wholesalers.
