Clown Killi (Epiplatys annulatus)

Out of stock

Remarks: Clown Killifish (Epiplatys annulatus) are sometimes called Rocket Killifish or 7-Color Killifish. They have small, but brightly patterned bodies, with alternating brown and tan bands from their nose to their caudal peduncle. Their tails are pointed, with a yellow band in the middle, bordered by a thin red stripe on each side, followed by a thick blue stripe to finish the fin. This gives them the appearance of a rocketship taking off. 

They are often very tiny when imported and will easily get sucked into a filter or eaten by fish larger than 1". They are great for small nano tanks, as they provide non-stop swimming action and you can see their brilliant colors from across the room, despite their size.
