Recently took ownership of 4 males and 7 females of this killifish as they proved a bit rambunctious for his community tank.

All he could tell me is that they were killifish.
Did a bit of googling and I think they are Fundulopanchax gardneri Nigerianum but would be grateful if any of the killi experts on here could confirm if i have/have not correctly id these fish.

Thanks

Steel Blue Killifish! (Gardneri)

I would be 99% sure!

Watch out...they jump!....Keep the lid on tight!

It is Fundulopanchax nigerianus.

But would have been known Fundulopanchax gardeneri nigerianus (or just Aphyosemion gardeneri or Fundulopanchax gardeneri at one time).

Ordinarily, you would expect to have the locale added to the end of the name...........so if this were from Makurdi then it would be named Fundulopanchax nigerianus Makurdi

Now, as the pedigree is not known for this particular specimen (it could be a cross of 2 locales), I am not going to put a locale to it.
