Can Anyone Identify This Fish???
I have this fish and no one can tell me what it is. The place I got it from couldn't even tell me what it is. It was the only one like it. I have never seen another fish like it. Here are some pictures. If you can tell me what it is, please do. Thanks.
I think FishinPole is right, looks like one of the lyretails, Aphyosemion species. Maybe a killifish specialist on here will know.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
Thanks. That site is really good for info on all rainbows. My avatar is a Pseudomugil gertrudae, so a very close cousin to the signifer. I've kept two strains of signifer, both a northern strain like the fish above and a southern brackish strain. They are nice fish and very fun to watch displaying. I eventually got rid of mine because they were displaying to my male gertrudae's. Signifers were more nippy in there displays, so they kept shredding the gertrudaes fins. But overall I love all the Pseudomugil species.
