This small fish is very peaceful and ideal for both beginners and experts alike, plus it is an excellent addition to the planted aquarium!
The Norman’s Lampeye Killifish (Poropanchax normani) is a peaceful fish whose small size makes it absolutely perfect for the nano or planted aquarium. Its name refers to the horizontal crescent at the top of its eye that seems to “glow” under the aquarium light. Native to Central and Western Africa, this hardy fish is excellent for even beginners. It will often spawn in the aquarium.
The Norman’s Lampeye Killifish occupies the top level of the water column almost exclusively. It is not afraid to jump, so it must be kept in an aquarium with either a lid/hood/canopy or at least a significantly lowered water level. It will not eat or bother plants and it will appreciate the cover, especially with floating plants. This fish is clearly best suited for a heavily planted aquarium.
