Storytelling time. It’s about the Aphyosemion australe (hjerreseni) – the Golden Lyretail Killifish. In today’s video I take you back to 1921 when Rachow described the natural form of the Aphyosemion australe, a fish discovered in rivers and ponds in a coastal strip between Congo and Gabon in Africa.
After that we take a look at the golden orange form, that was created by German aquarium fish breeder Hjerresin in the 1950’s.
Along the way I show you how Ulla and I keep and breed this beautiful little killifish.
Hope you will enjoy the trip.
