Re: Micropanchax kabae
the following is the description as listed in Wildekamp.
A relatively deep-bodied Aplocheilichthys species with strong lateral
compression and more or less truncated fins.
Male: Body color is pale yellow-olive, with a light blue iridescence on the
sides which is strongest between the insert of the pectoral fins and dorsal
fin. All scales on the back and sides distinct dark brown to black borders,
producing a well-defined reticulated pattern. All unpaired fins are yellow
to pale orange or pink.
Female: Translucent pale gray, the back being darker and the ventral region
being silver: lacks the light blue iridescence present on the sides of the
male. All unpaired fins are colorless.
Both sexes show a bright blue reflection in the upper part of the iris.
Maintenance and breeding are not known as this species has not been
introduced as an aquarium fish.
It is expected that this species would deposit eggs in fine, plant like
material and development time of the eggs would be 12-14 days.
