Aplocheilus dayi werneri(Werner's Panchax)

Properly known as Aplocheilus werneri according to current taxonomists.

A medium sized killifish with a pinkish head and geenish-yellow body and tail. The tail, dorsal, and anal fin are spectacularly coloured, with bright blue and yellow markings. A series of black vertical bands ornament the rear half of the flanks. The female is smaller and lacks the coloured fins, and dark bands are much less distinct.
