Sexual Dimorphism As with all members of the genus sexual dimorphism is pronounced.

In the Egyptian oasis at Siwa it apparently occurs sympatrically with A. Collaborators Pictures Stamps, Coins Misc.

While it is not currently at risk of extinction at species level many individual populations are sadly threatened for various reasons. Lebias sarda A;hanius, Lebias nigropunctata Schinz, Dominant individuals will show more intense colouration. The latter tend to exist in geographically separated populations and exhibit localised differentiation.

Aphanius sarda Wagner, Lebias flava Costa, Use a fine pair of forceps to gently remove pieces of medium with eggs attached whilst avoiding contact with the eggs themselves.

Aphanius timidus Gulia, It should be kept in a group with a ratio of two or three females to each male being the ideal. Like most Aphanius it is being outcompeted by Gambusia and other introduced species across some parts of its range while habitat degradation aphnaius pollution continue to affect others; some populations have probably been wiped out already and studies suggest the situation is only likely to deteriorate in the future.

Aphanius fasciatus (Valenciennes, ) – Aphanius de Corse – Overview

In practically all cases the root cause for this decline is the activity of humans and although some species apganius now protected by conservation law the mismanagement and degradation of their habitats continues at an alarming rate.

Cyprinodon ammonis Valenciennes, misspelling. An inland population of the species inhabits Lake Bafa, southwest Turkey. None are particularly well-documented in aquarium literature although some are very beautiful and the majority are not too difficult to maintain and breed.

Given its rarity in the hobby the emphasis should also be on captive reproduction and we strongly recommend maintaining it alone. It is a fractional spawner with females depositing eggs on a more-or-less continuous basis between the months of April and September.

Even for long-term maintenance a simple set-up will suffice. Alternatively the entire medium can be removed and replaced every couple of days.
