Online Auction Description
Bulgaria, 1993 issue, Scott's catalog # 3768 CTO, Two-banded Killi, Tropical Fish. This stamp is without defects, damage, and is in good condition.
Aphyosemion bivittatum (Two-stripe Lyretail, Two-banded Killi, Red Lyretail) is a species of freshwater fish belonging to the Nothobranchiidae family. It is found in rivers in southeastern Nigeria and southwestern Cameroon.
Appearance: Aphyosemion bivittatum has an elongated brightly coloured body with two dark bands running along each side. The males have a maximum body length of approximately 5 cm. It has 10-13 spines in its dorsal fin and 12-15 in its anal fin.
Habitat: The species is found in small calcium rich steams in the coastal rainforests of southeastern Nigeria and southwestern Cameroon. They are benthopelagic, meaning they float just above the riverbed. They prefer water with a pH of 6 to 6.5 and temperature of 22 to 24°C.
A bivittatum has only been observed in five locations and it is thought that they are present in no more than ten. This, along with the threat to their habitat from deforestation, has led them to be classified as vulnerable.
