My fave search engine www.google.com returned a few relevant hits on
"Fundulopanchax gardneri baissa" and from www.killifish.f9.co.uk (you'd

Imported by BKA Species Maintenance in the summer of 1974
A yellow phenotype with characteristic orange to the outer marginal
bands of the caudal & anal fins.
Situated at the headwaters of the River Donga, south eastern Nigeria.
This river flows from the mountains (Baissa is 1000 metres above sea
level) into the River Benue near Jibu.
Baissa is hemmed in on 3 sides by mountains. The River Donga is the only
river to drain the area.
Un-paired fins are a deep yellow/orange, sometimes appearing quite
orange. A good identifier is the rear of the dorsal fin which carries a
red line between the 3rd & 4th rays. This marking has been a constant
feature in many different individuals from different sources.
