Pseudepiplatys from ancient Greek, means "False Epiplatys" and annulatus from Latin for "ringed
This tiny species is native to West Africa. The maximum size of the male is 3-4 cm, the females remain smaller.
The species is completely peaceful against all other fish and is very suitable for nano aquariums. The males like to fight each other so the aquarium should be well planted. the clown killi easily feeds on any dry, frozen or live fish food.
The fish thrive best in relatively dark aquariums. It is important to put dead leaves, peat etc. On the ground. If the aquarium is too bright, the fish remain nervous. Water that is not too hard (up to 15°dGH) with a slightly acidic pH (6.2 - 6.5) is ideal, but the fish are quite hardy and also accept less optimal conditions. However, very clean water is absolutely necessary. The water temperature can be between 18 and 24°C.
