    Purchased as Aphyosemian Striatum but I have my doubts. I'll keep my opinion to myself so as not to influence any answers. What type is this?

    Australe was my guess too, Doesn't matter anyway as male didn't last the night. Just hoping my LFS will agree to taking back 7 females.

    For me too, I haven't kept killies for more than 30 years. There wasn't nearly so much choice back then. I had a few gardneri that bred quite often, but they must have been inbred as a lot of the fry had deformed mouths. I was looking for a male australe online to replace the dead one and saw loads of ads for eggs. Fairly inexpensive too, I may go down that route.

    This here is an Aphyosemian Australe 
    I have had two pairs now. 
    I'm sorry he didn't last the night :( 
     
    I also hope you have a hood that fits susupsuper tight and have nono holes. As they will escape!

    Water flow is quite gentle, using a sponge filter in a 3ft tank. I think my tank is escape proof

    Wow I am sorry for all those typing mistakes. 
    That's what happened when you use a mobile xD 
     
    They will escape through any hole. I've had one jump out the gap for wires. Try covering with a net.

    Been trying to source some males, but online sellers will only sell in pairs :(
