The Norman's Lampeye Killifish (Poropanchax normani) is a small species of killifish. It has a small, semi-transparent grey body, with large glowing blue eyes. 

These little killifish only grow to reach ~1.5 inches in length and live for 3 years in captivity. They prefer water temperatures in the low-to-high 70's, and a neutral pH.  It is recommended to keep these fish in groups of 6 or more, in a minimum tank size of 10 gallons (but more is always preferred).

These fish are carnivores, and will eat a variety of high-protein foods. They can be fed micropellets, crushed fish flakes, and very small frozen or live foods such as baby brine shrimp or cyclops. 

These fish prefer low-light conditions. We recommend a heavily-planted tank with dark gravel and a dark background. The way these fishes' eyes light up the tank is incredible. While these little fish are docile and will get along with other small, community fish species, many people will choose to keep them in species-only aquariums.
