    Beautiful fish. 
     
    "Papiliolebias francescae is the newest described species of rivulids from Bolivia, South America. Like many killifish, P.francescae is strikingly pigmented - a real pint-sized showstopper." http://www.advancedaquarist.com/blog/papiliolebias-francescae-a-new-killifish

    Absolutely beautiful! :eek:
     
    Really hope they can get these breeding well and into LFS before too long.
     
    I for one, would like to have these in one of my tanks :)

    It reminds me very much of my scarlet badis which is one of my favorite fish ever but the blue is more pronounced.

    This makes me want my killis back.
    I'd just have a tank of every killi species ;_;

    I love them so much
