From the Katanga province of the Congo we recieved Aplocheilichtys katangae. These non seasonal killies have a large distribution area in the central southern Africa. There they inhabit shallow, overgrown brooks and ponds. Their maximum size is approximately 6 cm. They feed on small water insects and crustaceans in tanks they can be fed with flakes or frozen food.
